Moot Court

gavel

Moot Court is an integral part of our Government and Politics curriculum at Evergreen High School, and an intense project satisfying the College Board's Civic Connection requirement. Essentially, it is an exhaustive research assignment where student teams tackle a live constitutional question and explore the myriad of complicating elements - e.g. case law, legislation, media bias, polling, special interests etc. - objective research with a conservative or liberal argument perspective.  After a semester of intense preparation, the teams then face one another in a public adversarial debate with a faculty or administrative panel. It's really remarkable what these students are able to do!

Join us for the festivities if you're available during the week of December 9-13.  Click HERE to view the scheduled topics and their times.
