GW Law Moot Court to Compete for National Championship
GW Law's Moot Court Program is one of the best in the country for the third consecutive year.
Ranked #11 by the University of Houston Law Center for the 2011-2012 academic year, GW Law's Moot Court Program has qualified to compete in the National Moot Court Championship in January of 2013.
“This year's competition will be a wonderful opportunity for students to compete in a challenging moot,” said Jacqueline Powers, current President of the GW Law Moot Court Board. “We look forward to sending a dynamic and qualified team to Houston to represent GW Law."
"The invitation to compete is an honor," said GW Law Dean David Johnson, "but the impressive ranking only partially reflects the qualities of our program. The ranking only recognizes our success in external moot court competitions against other law schools. Moot court is only a part of what we do. We also sponsor mock trials and alternative dispute resolution teams.GW Law averages 10 internal competitions per year for students, and many are presided over by sitting judges, including five current Supreme Court Justices. Overall, when you combine our external successes with our internal opportunities, it is hard to find a better advocacy program in the country."
