“I am delighted by our team’s outstanding performance,” said David Logan, Dean and Professor of Law, Roger Williams University School of Law. “Their victory demonstrates a collective talent for briefing, arguing and thinking on their feet – precisely the kind of practical know-how and theoretical savvy we aim to cultivate in all our students.”

The National Moot Court Competition, sponsored for over 60 years by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and the American College of Trial Lawyers, is a nationally recognized competition that allows law students to hone their appellate advocacy skills by arguing before prominent members in the law profession. The competition consists of two rounds of arguments, the regionals and the finals. The U.S. is divided into fourteen regions; withineach region a sponsor designated by the Competition Committee conducts regional rounds for the law schools located within that region. Teams that qualify in the regional rounds are eligible to enter the final rounds. More than 180 accredited law schools participate in the national program involving approximately 1,000 law students.
