students at moot court competition

Suffolk Law is nationally recognized for its moot court and mock trial teams. And it’s not just US News and World Report editors who said so (although they have).

The National Trial Team has won 26 New England regional championships since 1985 (that’s 26 out of 28), including four years when Suffolk Law teams also claimed second-place honors. The team practices intensely and routinely goes to national competitions, often making it to semi-final or final rounds.

The Moot Court Program offers scores of students the chance to prepare and present appellate arguments before judges and judicial panels – both within the school and in competition with other schools.

Besides Suffolk Law’s National Moot Court Team, there are teams that focus on constitutional, international, patent, securities, tax, international, foreign direct investment and trademark law.
