Student coaches work with mooters to help shape their performance and improve their oral and written advocacy skills.  Coaches will write a paper on a topic related to the problem, but not duplicative of the factum writing the mooters do.  They organise practice rounds and keep a log of factum-writing and run through meetings.

Selection: In order to receive credit in this course, a student must be selected and serve as a student coach to one of the competitive moots for which mooters receive academic credit. 

To earn this credit, a student must submit to the faculty (or adjunct faculty) supervisor in the relevant competitive moot (1) a 2,500 to 3,000 word paper on the subject matter of the moot, and (2) a journal documenting the moot run-throughs attended and substantive feedback given to the mooters.
