A moot court is a role-play of an appeals court or Supreme Court oral argument. This document provides basic instructions on how to conduct a moot court in your classroom. 

Because moot courts may explore issues related to race and social identity, Street Law recommends: Teaching Street Law Content Involving Race and Social Identity. This resource can help teachers bring content about race and social identity into their classrooms. It offers some advice and questions to help guide decisions about teaching this content while affirming students’ identities.
