Team Members Executive Board Awards & Accomplishments Competitions


The Moot Court Honor Society at the American University Washington College of Law sponsors a wide-range of activities designed to provide students opportunities to practice their oral advocacy and brief writing skills. The Society competes at fourteen competitions nationally and internationally. Our teams consistently win brief and oralist awards, in addition to regional and national championships.

Each year the Moot Court Honor Society administers intra-school moot court competitions, held at WCL for WCL students only, and trains WCL students to compete in and win national appellate advocacy tournaments other law schools administer. The Moot Court Honor Society also hosts the Burton D. Wechsler First Amendment Moot Court Tournament, at which over 30 law schools from across the nation compete.

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.
