High school students from partner schools competed against each other in an all-day moot court competition held at Penn Law as part of The James Wilson Project. The Moot Court Tournament is JWP’s capstone event and took place on Thursday, April 4.

The JWP Board developed a moot court problem, consisting of a fact set centered on a Fourth Amendment issue, case summaries, relevant statutes and other background material. The high school students then worked with Penn Law Teaching and Coaching Fellows to navigate the problem, develop an argument and practice delivery of that argument. The James Wilson Moot Court Tournament helps the high school students to develop critical thinking, reasoning, and oral advocacy skills.

On the day of the competition, the students participated in three rounds of oral arguments. The fourth and final round was between the two finalists - a student from Overbrook and one from Palumbo Academy - and was judged by a panel of Penn Law Alumni.
