How to Join International Moot Court

Recruiting of new members begins at the start of the fall and spring semesters during a student's second year. Students aspiring to become members of IMC must have completed the Appellate Advocacy class and must take International Law before graduation.

All of our members are encouraged to take International Law as early as the first semester of their second year in order to compete in any of our prestigious competitions. For a complete list of member duties and board rules please see our constitution.

A second year student can become a member of IMC through the following options:

  1. Students may become a member through participation in an “intramural” competition. Each competitor must submit a written brief and present an oral argument. Students will submit the same brief and will make the same oral argument that was used for appellate advocacy.
  2. Students who receive an outstanding student award in their first-year legal research and writing, or the advanced legal research and writing course will be extended an invitation to become a member (no need to participate in the “intramural” competition).
  3. Students who receive an outstanding student award in their appellate advocacy course will be extended an invitation to become a member (no need to participate in the “intramural” competition).

If you have any questions please contact any of our executive board officers at imc@stu.edu.
