*Students on a mock trial team must give their ID number to the Moot Court Board president and Lori Richman one week before course registration for the fall or immediately after accepting their position on a team—whichever is later—in order to be pre-registered for Evidence and Trial Advocacy for the fall semester. Students who fail to do so run the risk of not getting into those courses and jeopardizing their spot on the mock trial team.
**Students on the arbitration team are encouraged to register for Evidence and Trial Advocacy for the fall semester during course registration in the spring. These students do not have a registration preference and will not be pre-registered for those courses by the administration.
Students should register the semester before the term for which you will receive credit.
If a team is chosen after the add period, students must submit an add slip within a week of the date they are notified. Students who fail to do so will not receive credit.
If you choose to participate in any of the above-listed competition teams or moot court courses for credit (either graded or ungraded), you must register yourself for the course during the registration period.
If you fail to do so, you will not receive credit for your participation on a team or Moot Court Board without a showing of extraordinary circumstances to the associate dean.
