CLOSING ARGUMENT COMPETITION

The Center for Excellence in Advocacy will sponsor an intra-school Closing Argument Competition on Sat., Apr. 6.  With the exception of students who are currently on the Chase Trial Team, all students are eligible to compete. If you wish to compete, complete the registration form and email it to Prof. Harrison by Fri., Mar. 22.  The Closing Argument Competition Problem can be found here

Information About The Competition

For the competition, your closing argument should be approximately 7 minutes in length.  For the purposes of the competition, assume that all exhibits in the case file have been admitted and that the witnesses at trial testified consistent with their depositions,  YOU CANNOT CREATE NEW FACTS OR EVIDENCE OR JUST MAKE SOMETHING UP.  If you wish to being supporters to watch, that is fine.  If you wish to have someone sit at the table with you acting as your client, that is fine as well.  You may use flipcharts or boards or props, so be creative.  If you intend to use powerpoints, let Professor Harrison know in advance.  

The individuals with the highest average point totals will advance to the semifinals. The semifinals and finals will simply be based on who wins the most ballots head to head.

Dress for the competition is courtroom attire.

If you have any questions, contact Prof. Harrison.

Date:  Saturday, April 6, 2019
Time:  9:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
