From the ACMA website:
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 nearly 450 teams registered to compete in thirteen qualifying tournaments to attempt to win a bid to the Championship Tournament that was held at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL.
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 2019-2020 Championship Tournament.
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.
“I came to law school very introverted. Through class preparation and the opportunity to be in moot court, I learned to enjoy speaking and to confidently convey legal arguments. I largely credit my success to the atmosphere and opportunities afforded by Regent Law.“— Sam Kane, J.D., Class of 2020, Law Clerk, Superior Court, Kotzebue, Alaska
