Moot Court

Each year, students from the College of Law participate in the National Tax Moot Court Competition, sponsored by the Florida Bar Association. Held during the latter part of January, the Competition attracts teams from law schools nationwide. Participants are required to write an appellate brief dealing with novel tax issues and to argue those issues before tax practitioners and IRS attorneys. The final rounds of the Competition are argued before Tax Court and federal appeals court judges.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the Mugel tax competition has become the largest and longest-running tax moot court in the United States. The competition is named in honor of Albert Mugel, a senior partner in the Buffalo law firm of Jaeckle Fleischmann and a professor of law who taught tax at UB for more than 50 years. The College of Law has participated in the Mugel Tax Moot Court Competition for several years.
