The Moot Court Honor Society at American University Washington College of Law ("WCL"), a student-run organization, sponsors a wide-range of activities designed to provide students opportunities to practice their oral advocacy and brief writing skills.

The Moot Court Honor Society makes valuable contributions to the law school, broader legal, and non-legal communities. Every year the Moot Court Honor Society administers intra-school Moot Court Competitions, held at WCL for WCL students only, trains WCL students to compete in and win national trial and appellate advocacy tournaments other law schools administer, hosts the Burton D. Wechsler First Amendment Moot Court Tournament, at which over 30 law schools from across the nation compete, and hosts the National High School Moot Court Tournament, the first and only such tournament in the country.

The Moot Court Honor Society is under the control and direction of its Executive Board Members. The Executive Board Members administer the curricular and extracurricular components of the Moot Court Honor Society, are second and third year students at WCL, and are elected by their predecessors. First- and Second-year students at WCL may serve as Assistants to the Moot Court Executive Board.

Faculty advisors support the Executive Board Members in their efforts, coaching those WCL students selected to compete at national trial and appellate advocacy competitions. WCL students who are among the top 30 competitors in the Spring Qualifying Tournament, earn the honor of representing WCL at trial and appellate advocacy competitions across the country.

Alumni and Practitioners also play a vital role in the Moot Court Society's mission. Lawyers, professors, and judges from the DC-area and beyond both help to train WCL students on our Inter-school Team, as well as, judge intra- and inter-school tournaments which the Moot Court Honor Society administers.
