Due to bandwidth constraints, the competition is all virtual this year (no spectators will be allowed). Stay tuned for updates after the tournament this weekend.

The AMCA is the largest intercollegiate moot court organization in the United States. Last year, more than 475 teams registered to compete in 14 qualifying tournaments to attempt to win a bid to the championship tournament that was held at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Each year, students from additional colleges and universities decide to participate in the opportunity provided by intercollegiate moot court.
