NKU Chase students may obtain hands-on experience and test their skills against those of other law students both at Chase and throughout the country through a variety of competition team programs.
Moot Court Team competitions simulate appellate practice, teaching students how to write appellate briefs and argue before appellate courts.
National Trial Team competitions simulate jury trials, teaching students how to develop a theory of a case, how to prepare and deliver opening and closing arguments, and how to examine witnesses.
Arbitration Team competitions simulate arbitration hearings. Competitions require many of the same skill sets as trial competitions, but in a less formal setting.
Negotiation Team competitions simulate various forms of legal negotiations, teaching bi- and multi-lateral bargaining techniques.
Client Counseling Team competitions simulate law office consultations in which competitors, acting as attorneys, are presented with potential new clients.
Intra-scholastic Competitions provide Chase students the opportunity to compete with each other in Moot Court, Client Counseling, and Closing Argument Competitions; and an Opening Statement Competition exclusively for first-year students.
