Order of Barristers

Order of Barristers

The order of Barristers is a national honorary organization whose purpose is the encouragement of oral advocacy and brief writing skills through effective law school oral advocacy programs.  The Order of Barristers originated in 1965 at The University of Texas at Austin School of Law.  The purpose was to honor graduating seniors who had demonstrated outstanding ability in the preparation and presentation of moot appellate argument.  The Order was officially established as a national organization in 1970.

During the spring of 1971, a number of schools submitted applications for membership and the current roll boasts over 100 law school chapters throughout the nation.  Schools having chapters in the Order include those nationally recognized for outstanding moot court programs and for successful participation in regional, national, and international interscholastic moot court competitions.
