Moot Court and Trial Competitions at University of St. Thomas Law School

Papers are stacked somewhat neatly in two piles, interweaving amongst each other.

Ron Meuser and Mary Beth Boyce of Meuser Law Office, P.A. are proud to be part of this year’s University of St. Thomas Moot Court Intramural Competition. Each year the University of St. Thomas Law School send students to participate in national moot court, trial advocacy, and negotiations competitions. These competitions offer students an opportunity to focus on their written and oral advocacy skills, which are key skills when practicing law. The intramural competition helps determine which students make the various teams.

In a moot court competition, students are tasked with arguing a hypothetical case on appeal to the United Supreme Court. In participating, the students are showing their ability to write and speak clearly while thinking quickly.

Mary Beth was invited to judge the initial rounds and Ron was asked to be a judge for the final round of the St. Thomas School of Law Intramural Moot Court Competition held in September. Ron had the honor to judge alongside former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Dietzen and Professor Teresa Collett. What an honor and great experience! Congratulations to all the students who participated!
