Each spring, all first year students may compete in the Beaudry Competition to join the Appellate Advocacy Team. Competitors must write an appellate brief based on a closed packet and then argue their case in front of a panel of judges. Finalists argue before a panel of prominent local and federal judges. Those who advance to a certain level are invited to join the Barristers' Council and to represent Georgetown Law on its Appellate Advocacy team.
