About the Hunter Moot Court Competition: The competition is dedicated to the memory of the Honorable James Hunter III, who served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit from 1971–1989. The 32 students in the Hunter Appellate Advocacy program were selected based on their achievements in their previous legal writing courses and on their skill in an oral argument try-out. The program is year-long and carries five graded credits. Students wrote the briefs during the fall semester, while studying advanced legal writing and persuasion theory materials from the fields of classical Aristotelian rhetoric, cognitive psychology, narrative and literary theory, and linguistics. In the spring semester, before the competitive rounds of oral argument, students completed a course on public speaking.
