The Family and Youth Law Center at Capital University Law School, proudly hosts the annual National Moot Court Competition in Child Welfare & Adoption Law.  The competition attracts teams from law schools across the country and engages numerous attorneys, judges, and magistrates to serve as volunteer judges for briefs and oral arguments.  Law students experience an one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop and refine their advocacy skills through briefing and presenting oral arguments related to arguing case scenarios involving timely, complex, and challenging issues in family law.  Legal professionals gain an opportunity to provide mentorship and encouragement to the students, while also furthering their own substantive knowledge of the legal issues involved in the case.    

Teams demonstrate their advocacy skills as they present legal arguments Friday at the Ohio Statehouse and Saturday, at the Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial Center.
