Third Annual National Pretrial Competition at Stetson University in FLA (Oct. 8-9, 2010)

Stetson University College of Law and The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division invites Harvard Law School students to participate in the Third Annual National Pretrial Competition on October 8-9, 2010.  This year, Stetson has opened the competition to include 12 teams.

This competition captures what attorneys do every day in offices and courtrooms across the nation – pretrial motion practice.  Competing teams receive a problem containing two issues that would require pretrial resolution.  Each team writes two briefs – one for the respondent and one for the petitioner.  Then, upon submitting their briefs, teams receive supplemental information that may later or negate the arguments they submitted.  At the competition, teams present oral arguments, examine witnesses, and ultimately attempt to synthesize law and new facts in a final argument.

If you have any questions about the competition please do not hesitate to contact Stetson University.  You can visit their website (http://www.law.stetson.edu/pretrail), where you will find information from the 2009 competition, including the problem, rules, and supplemental information that was sent following receipt of the briefs.
