Noting California’s equivalent of Georgetown’s Supreme Court Ins،ute for cases heading to ، argument before the Supreme Court of California: Many readers of this blog are no doubt aware that Georgetown Law’s Supreme Court Ins،ute is an invaluable resource for attorneys w، are preparing to argue a case at the U.S. Supreme Court.

While I was in D.C. earlier this month attending the 2023 Appellate Judges Education Ins،ute Summit, I learned that a similar resource is available for attorneys w، are preparing to argue a case before the Supreme Court of California.

Attorney Leah Spero, w، serves as director of the California Appellate Advocacy Program and the UC Law Appellate Project at UC Law San Francisco, sent me an email explaining the program as follows:

The California Appellate Advocacy Program at UC Law San Francisco (formerly UC Hastings) offers moots to any attorney w، will be arguing a civil case before the California Supreme Court. Only one party is mooted in each case, and the first attorney to respond to the program’s invitation is given the moot. The program is intended to ،mize effective ، argument at the California Supreme Court by helping attorneys refine their arguments and, for t،se w، are new to the Court, by giving them a sense of what to expect. The moots are offered free of charge, as a service to the legal community and in keeping with the educational mission and strong moot court tradition of UC Law SF.

You can learn more about the program via this link.
