The Moot Court Honor Board publishes the Suffolk Journal of Trial & Appellate Advocacy twice each year. The Journal makes the Moot Court Honor Board unique because Board Members participate in managing competitions as well as producing a scholarly law journal.
The Journal provides practical and in-depth analyses of current legal issues relating to trial and appellate practice. Similar to most law reviews, articles in the Journal support and perpetuate legal analysis among scholars. The Journal is unique, however, because of its practical value: discourse on current litigation issues naturally purveys a practical import for attorneys in daily practice. The Journal's scholarship thereby advances legal content while simultaneously helping the harried practitioner maintain a lexicon of recent decisions that could affect daily practice.
Please contact Brooke McNeill if you are interested in submitting an article or book review for possible publication. The editorial staff requests that the submissions be in law review format with detailed footnotes.
