We are ranked 1st in Michigan and 17th nationally!
As one of the top 20 teams in the nation (out of 425+), SVSU has earned state pride and national respect for our Moot Court Team. Moot Court is a simulated argument in front of the United States Supreme Court and allows students to not only gain skills in critical thinking and speaking, which will help them in any care they choose but also allows them to measure their abilities against those of talented students around the country. Students work as a team to prepare oral arguments and/or legal briefs, then compete in regional and national tournaments.
It also helps them determine if law school is the right choice for them. Most Moot Court students go on to law school, but those who go to graduate school or into employment agree Moot Court has made them more prepared and helped to develop the confidence to excel.
These stories offer insight into how our students have turned their SVSU experiences into successful opportunities yielding real-world success.
