Froessel Competition

Annual Charles W. Froessel Competition

Each fall, the New York Law School Moot Court Association administers the Charles W. Froessel Intramural Moot Court Competition. The Froessel Competition is a rigorous recruiting program used by the New York Law School Moot Court Association to select its members. In addition, the competition provides students with the opportunity to display their advocacy skills.

The competition is named in honor of NYLS alumnus Charles W. Froessel (Class of 1913), an Associate Judge of the New York Court of Appeals.
