The Nebraska Law Review is proud to reproduce here the winning brief of the Seventh Annual National Moot Court Competition submitted by a three-member team representing the University of Nebraska College of Law. To retain that value which may be gained from the brief as a style guide for other collegiate teams in moot court competitions and for the practicing lawyer, the brief is published as it appeared in the final round of competition, rather than in the newly adopted format and typographical style of the Nebraska Law Review. More important, the substance of the brief deals with a perplexing problem of the criminal law-the defense of insanity. The brief is of course a document advocating one side of the issue. The following brief summary of the legal issue raised is included to place the brief in its proper context.
