Reimel Competition_2023_winnerscropped
2023 Reimel Moot Court Competition winners, Daniel Rooney ’25 and Jillian Updegraff ’25, pictured with the final round judges

The Theodore L. Reimel Moot Court Competition is an annual intra-school tournament and a hallowed tradition at Villanova Law. Named in honor of the late Theodore L. Reimel, Judge for the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas from 1953 to 1973, the competition is designed to foster student development in written and oral advocacy through simulated appellate argument. Many alumni and other esteemed members of the legal community come to the law school to judge the oral arguments and provide advice and feedback to our students.

In 2015, the Reimel Competition was integrated with the LW3鈥揕itigation/Appellate Advocacy course to provide second-year students with a more comprehensive, authentic and practice-oriented educational experience. Students enrolled in Appellate Advocacy participate in Reimels as part of the course.  Third-year students are also encouraged to participate in the competition. All participants work in teams of two and are required to write an appellate brief and participate in oral arguments.

2L students enrolled in Legal Writing III: Litigation/Appellate Advocacy compete in teams of two writing an appellate brief and arguing twice (once on-brief and once off-brief) in the preliminary round of the competition. The top-scoring teams advance to the elimination rounds of the competition. Villanova alumni, professors, local practitioners, and distinguished federal and state judges serve as panelists in the intra-school competition.

Last year Villanova Law鈥檚 Moot Court board members found success in various national appellate advocacy competitions, where they faced teams from law schools across the country. Each team consisted of two students from the Moot Court Board, the principal oral advocacy organization at Villanova Law which aims to enhance and showcase students鈥 courtroom advocacy skills.

Participants analyzed and argued cutting-edge legal issues for hypothetical cases, from either the plaintiffs鈥 side or the defendants鈥. They used procedures modeled after those employed in state and federal appellate courts.

This year, the Moot Court Board is excited to return to in-person external competitions and continue to meet success!
