"The [Georgetown Supreme Court] Institute's moot court program is highly valued by novice and experienced advocates alike, because of the high quality and skill of the judges that [the] Institute . . . is able to attract to do the moot courts. These programs have made it easier both for first-timers and experienced advocates to do a more professional job before the Court."
