The Suffolk Journal of Trial and Appellate Advocacy is published twice a year by the Moot Court Honor Board. It provides practical and in-depth analyses of current legal issues relating to trial and appellate practice. It is comprised of lead articles submitted by outside authors with expertise in their respective fields, and student-written Notes and Case Comments submitted by MCHB staff members. Journal members select a unique topic, research primary and secondary legal sources, analyze the legal issues facing the trial and appellate advocacy community, and write an original piece for publication.
