Michigan State University College of Law has the top-ranked law school moot court program in the United States, according to 2019-2020 data compiled by the University of Houston Law Center’s Blakely Advocacy Institute (UHLC).

Moot court is a competitive exercise requiring law students to prepare appellate briefs and argue both sides of complicated legal issues before an appellate court – usually a simulated Supreme Court. Students typically travel to locations across the country to compete against teams from other law schools, but the travel restrictions necessitated by COVID-19 disrupted the second half of the season, forcing competitors to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances.
