Competition Overview

The Florida Bar Tax Section has hosted a National Tax Moot Court Competition annually to
have law students from various law schools across the country come and demonstrate their
written brief and oral argument skills. This is an opportunity for law students to continue to
sharpen and develop their skills, while networking with attorneys as well.
The format of the competition consists of a first round double elimination oral argument
followed by single elimination quarterfinals, semifinal, and final rounds (together hereinafter
referred to as the “Rounds”). There is a separate competition for written briefs, with
independent judging and awards. The problem (hereinafter the “Problem”) consists of three or
four issues, all tax related. For preliminary rounds of the oral argument competition, judges are
made up of attorneys who are members of the Section. The final and consolation rounds
consist of judges from the United States Tax Court. On the final day, at a dinner/reception,
awards will be presented to the teams that presented the best written briefs and oral

a spot. It does, however, try to be fair and give everyone the opportunity to participate. Each
year, registration packets are provided to all schools that competed in the prior year’s
competition. Returning schools will have one week advanced notice to register before the
competition is open to everyone. It is important to note that returning schools are not
guaranteed a position in the competition. A week after, notices are sent to the remaining
