Though it’s only been a year since Moot Court was resurrected at Marietta College, the program has garnered much success.
In addition to having four students compete in the 2012 American Collegiate Moot Court Association Midwest Regional Tournament at the College of Wooster in November, Marietta College’s program received additional recognition this spring when Dr. McKinzie Craig was named to the ACMA Board of Directors for a one-year term. Craig is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and the director of the College’s Moot Court Program. She began teaching at Marietta in 2012.
The Moot Court Program gives students who are interested in attending law school the opportunity to study, prepare and present constitutional law arguments. The ACMA provides a hypothetical case for each course that students read and then prepare arguments and a defense for their positions. The course highlights the quality of reading, researching, writing and public speaking skills involved in the field of constitutional law.
