Getting Ready For Moot Court
By Washington Courts
May 3, 2009, 9:25am

Claim Your Jurisdiction Game

This is an in-class game designed to give students an understanding of the court system. This particular curriculum is based on the Washington State Court system.

Students will play a game after they learn more about state and federal courts. They'll spend two days researching and then presenting a five-minute seminar on a specific court.

Once all of the research and presentations are complete, students play a game in which they try to decide whether or not their assigned court has jurisdiction to hear a particular case. Teams receive points for correctly claiming jurisdiction.

This game is designed to accommodate eight teams.
