The Jenkins Honors Moot Court Competition is an appellate moot court competition for Marquette law students. Students are invited to participate based on their performance in the Appellate Writing and Advocacy course at the Law School.

Students will begin writing their appellate briefs in January with oral arguments commencing later this spring. The competition includes preliminary oral argument rounds and a quarterfinal, semifinal, and final round.

The Jenkins competitors are fortunate to argue before distinguished members of the bench and bar from Wisconsin and beyond. The competition is named after James G. Jenkins, the first Marquette Law School dean.
