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

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 trial and appellate advocacy tournaments other law schools administer. The Moot Court Honor Society also hosts both the Burton D. Wechsler First Amendment Moot Court Tournament, at which over 30 law schools from across the nation compete, and 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.
