Combined JD/MHA Program - Second Year Moot LAWS 2311   Second Year Moot
The Second Year Moot is a full-year, mandatory course for all second year students. It explores the principles of persuasive advocacy though an assigned appeal to the Supreme Moot Court of Dalhousie. The fall term focuses on written advocacy. Students will write and submit a factum in accordance with the rules set out in the Moot Court Manual. The winter term focuses on oral advocacy. Students will prepare for and argue their assigned appeal before a panel of justices drawn from faculty members, practitioners and third year law students. The Second Year Moot is worth 1 credit hour (0.5 per term) and is evaluated by faculty on an honours/pass/fail basis. Exceptional mooters may be nominated to try out for the Smith Shield mooting competition held in October of the following year.
NOTES: Students taking this course must register in and complete LAWS 2311 & LAWS 2321 in consecutive terms; credit will not be granted if courses are not completed consecutively
