2022 Teaching Advocates Conference
The LSU Law Center Advocacy Program is pleased to host the moot court “track” of the 2022 Teaching Advocates Conference (TAC)! The Moot Court TAC will be held at the LSU Law Center on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2022. This conference is intended to bring together those in the law school moot court community – program directors, faculty, coaches, competition organizers and administrators, and others! In fact, the theme for this conference is “Coming Back Together” – this year’s conference will bring the moot court community together to talk about the issues we face as we transition back to in-person competitions.
If you would be interested in joining a panel or guided discussion, please contact any of the conference committee members!
Friday, September 30, 2022 and Saturday, October 1, 2022
The conference will begin with a welcome address at 9:00 am CST on Friday, September 30. The conference will conclude at approximately 4:00 pm CST on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided on Friday; breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday.
