The University of Washington School of Law Moot Court Honor Board fully funds competitors in five different regional/national competitions:

Members of these teams are selected based on tryouts or performance during the Falknor or 1L Appellate Advocacy Competitions.

MCHB may also help arrange partial funding to students who wish to participate in regional or national moot court competitions that are not on the sponsorship list. For information on independent teams, click here.

Although not directly affiliated with MCHB, the Vis Arbitration Moot also provides an opportunity for interested students to participate in a mock international arbitration.
