American Collegiate Moot Court Competition
2021 Mid-Atlantic Regional American Collegiate Moot Court Association Competition
NOVEMBER 12-13, 2021 | REGENT UNIVERSITY
Designed to introduce undergraduate students to the art of appellate advocacy, the American Collegiate Moot Court Competition allows students to showcase their public speaking skills before judges who focus on the students’ ability to extemporaneously answer complex legal questions.
The 2021 ACMA Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition will be held November 12-13, 2021.
Please contact Alex Touchet, the competition director, if you have questions.
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, 500 teams registered to compete in fifteen qualifying tournaments to attempt to win a bid to the Championship Tournament that was held virtually for the first time in the history of the AMCA.
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 coveted bids to the 2021-2022 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
