Making It to Levin College of Law’s Moot Court Final Four

June 11, 2013

Lisa Poursine serves as an associate attorney with the Law Offices of Bohdan Neswiacheny. During her university career, Lisa Poursine was honored as the 2000 Best Oralist winner of the 2000 Zimmerman Kiser Sutcliffe Moot Court Final Four competition.

The Zimmerman Kiser Sutcliffe Moot Court Final Four competition is hosted every year and showcases the legal skills of competitors from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law. Contestants must have completed their first year of law school or four semesters for a joint degree, have finished appellate advocacy, and be in good academic standing with the institution.

Before law students try out for the Moot Court Final Four, they must attend a meeting and then participate in the Final Four event that follows the meeting. Competitors prepare and submit an appellate brief on a topic his or her team selects within a specified amount of time.

This first oral argument makes up 40 percent of his or her score. There are two other arguments that must be prepared, worth 40 and 20 percent respectively. One is an off-brief, and one is an on-brief. The three scores are combined and the highest scorers make it to the Final Four team.
