AMCA Regional Competition

About the Competition 

The American Moot Court Association (AMCA) is the largest moot court organization for undergraduate students in the United States. These tournaments introduce undergraduates to the concept of moot court: a simulated court where participants argue hypothetical legal cases, typically based on real-world legal issues, before a panel of judges.  

The purpose of the AMCA is to enhance the participants' understanding of constitutional law, appellate advocacy, and the platform of moot court. Additionally, it helps students refine their public speaking, critical thinking, and legal research skills. 

The AMCA organizes regional and national tournaments throughout the year. CapLaw Moot Court is honored to host one of AMCA’s Regional Tournaments for the second time this November. A combination of professors, attorneys, judges, law students, and other legal professionals will sit as judges for the competition. We are so appreciative of CapLaw’s strong alumni base and active student body who are willing to volunteer their time to help make this competition a wonderful experience for those who participate.
