Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition
The Honorable John R. Brown served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit as one of the nation’s most prominent admiralty judges from 1955 until his death in 1993. Shortly after his death and in his honor, The University of Texas School of Law established the “Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition,” an interscholastic appellate advocacy competition. Each year, the Competition is held under the joint sponsorship of The University of Texas School of Law and a local host school.
Major funding each year is provided by the Houston law firm of Royston, Rayzor, Vickery & Williams L.L.P. (where Judge Brown practiced from 1932 to 1955) and the Maritime Law Association of the United States.
As in years past, last year we were privileged to have distinguished judges serving as judges for the Championship Round. For the semi-final rounds, we were pleased to have as judges prominent members of the maritime bar, presidents and past presidents of the Maritime Law Association of the United States, and admiralty professors.
Registration is now open for the 30th Annual Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition. We look forward to hosting 32 teams in New Orleans, Louisiana this Spring. The tournament will run from March 23 to March 25, 2023 in partnership with Tulane University School of Law. Please direct all questions to the competition director at email@example.com.
