Friends of Moot Court

The NIU Law Moot Court Society has organized an alumni group called the Friends of Moot Court to provide assistance and support for Moot Court teams as they prepare for external competitions.

The number of competitions available to Moot Court Society members continues to increase. While this increase in competition brings many benefits, including a heightened awareness of NIU Law and its students, there is also the unfortunate reality of an increase in the costs of competition.

Because the NIU Law cannot cover all of the expenses of the Moot Court Society, there are opportunities for Friends of Moot Court members to make possible the continued participation of the Moot Court Society in competitions.


The cost of a two-year membership is $75. All funds raised will be used to defray the Society's expenses. Membership includes receiving the Friends of Moot Court Newsletter.

Donations can also be made to help defray costs such as the following:

  • Prize Moot Court Competition receptions and banquet
  • Entry fees and competition expenses such as food and hotel for external competitions
