Criminal Appellate Moot Court Program

The post-conviction unit administers a moot court program in which members of the post-conviction panel act as volunteer judges for panelists who want to be mooted before appearing in court for oral argument. The unit organizes the moot court session for the attorney being mooted by polling the panel for volunteers. The briefs are distributed to the moot court judges to read before the argument. The moot courts are conveniently held by video conference, though live sessions are available on request.  If you have an oral argument coming up, and wish to be mooted, contact Murray Kohn at mkohn@publiccounsel.net.
