All dayBOA Gibbs & Bruns Moot Court Competition

The Board of Advocates is happy to announce their first intramural competition of the year will be the 2020 Gibbs & Bruns Moot Court Competition. This competition will be held from September 14-18 over Zoom.

This year's competition will be using the same problem used by the Spring 2020 Persuasive Writing and Advocacy classes. For this reason, Gibbs & Bruns will be split into two brackets: one for 2Ls, who already have completed a brief for this problem, and one for 1L/3Ls. 2L competitors will be required to use their existing written briefs, without any new edits, for the competition.

If you are interested in competing, please sign-up via the Google Form below. After you sign up, you will be added to the Board of Advocates page in Canvas and will have access to all competition information and resources. The deadline to sign-up and submit your brief is Monday, September 7.”

Please note, for this BOA Competition only, anyone is allowed to participate and you do not have to be a BOA member or pay a fee to compete.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jon Molinar, BOA Moot Court Director,

In lieu of our usual Bar Review, SBA will be hosting a weekly Ex Parke this semester on Thursday evenings! This is a great opportunity to meet students from other 1L sections as well as other class years. Each week we will visit a park for an outdoor, socially-distanced hangout. There will be blankets spread out so students can meet up in groups of no more than 10. We kindly ask that you arrive close to the assigned time for your class ye

Please join the Texas Law Disability Alliance for our Character and Fitness event, now held virtually! C&F is a alcohol-free, family-friendly social event designed for those who prefer a relaxed and sober environment for getting to know other law students and their families. Typically held just before Bar Review at a local coffee shop, C&F will now be held virtually via Google Meets. This event is perfect for those who can't make it to Ex Parke for geographic, health or family reasons! There will be games, fun, and a heck of a good time and we can't wait to see you there!
