Moot Court Club Takes Shape
A new club is taking shape on campus — the Moot Court Club offers students the opportunity to make a simulated
appellate argument, similar to those made in front of the Supreme Court, in teams of two students each. With Dr. Scott
Meachum as faculty advisor, the Club met for the first time during the Spring 2022 semester. While membership in the
Club is open to any and all students, in order to be eligible for the competition team a student must have taken POLS 4151 or
previously competed in an on-campus moot court event.
Dr. Meachum says that: “Moot Court provides an opportunity for students interested in the legal profession to get a
unique experience” they may not get in class or through their internship opportunities. Part of this centers around the
ability of Moot Court participants to compete with other students at UNG, regionally, and eventually, on a national level
through the Moot Court Association.
UNG’s Moot Court Club is holding its first campus tournament in April, with the possibility of creating a competitive
team that will compete regionally in November 2022
