National Moot Court Competition

About the Competition:

The New York City Bar and the American College of Trial Lawyers have sponsored a National Moot Court Competition since 1950. Every year, over 150 law schools compete in the regional rounds throughout the country. The top two teams from each region advance to compete in the final rounds held at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. The University of Washington School of Law typically sends two three-person teams to compete at the Northwestern Regional Rounds each year. 

The National Moot Court Competition is the oldest and largest moot court competition in the United States. The University of Washington School of Law has a history of strong performance in this competition, including a National Championship in 2006–07.
