State Moot Court Competition

Each year in conjunction with the State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting, the Texas Young Lawyers Association invites all ABA-accredited law schools in Texas to compete.

This year’s competition is scheduled for June 15-17, 2021 and will be held either in a virtual format or in person. As always, the competition will be held in conjunction with the State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting (Fort Worth) and will begin on Tuesday, June 15 with team check-in at 8:00 a.m.  If we are able to hold the competition in person, teams should plan on checking into the hotel on Monday, June 14 in order to begin the competition early Tuesday morning.  More detailed information will be sent out via email after registration.  If you have any questions regarding State Moot Court or registering, please email Bree Trevino,

This year’s problem is a criminal problem and can be found here.

The Texas Supreme Court or the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals presides over the final round (depending on whether it is a civil or criminal problem).
