About Us

The American Moot Court Association is the largest intercollegiate moot court organization in the US. The AMCA establishes the rules of competition and supervises regional and national tournaments that are open to all college and university students. Last year more than 350 teams registered to compete in eleven qualifying tournaments to attempt to win a bid to the Championship Tournament that was held at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida.

Each year, students from additional colleges and universities decide to participate in the challenging and rewarding opportunity provided by intercollegiate moot court. We anticipate that more teams will compete for one of the 80 coveted bids to the 2017-18 Championship Tournament, which will be held on January 19-20, 2018 at UNT Dallas-College of Law in Dallas, Texas.

This website provides several resources to explore if you have interest in starting a moot court team, including the current case problem, AMCA rules, a list of the regional tournaments, videos of the final rounds of previous national tournaments, and other resources.
