USC National Moot Court Team
Hale Moot Court Honors Program

Each year, up to 10 students from the Hale Moot Court Honors Program are selected to join USC's National Moot Court team during their 3L year. Members of the National Moot Court team represent USC in national moot court competitions across the country. Teams have participated in competitions that involve a wide variety of complex issues involving constitutional law, criminal law, evidence, international business law, national security, and even space law. The team regularly sends competitors to the largest and most prestigious competitions, including the ABA Appellate Advocacy Competition, the New York Bar Association Moot Court Competition, the Chicago Bar Association Moot Court Competition, and the Federal Bar Association Moot Court Competition.

Teams from USC have had success in all of those competitions, regularly advancing to the semifinal and final rounds. Most recently, Zoe Steinberg and Rachel Yang had the honor of placing second overall in the national finals of the New York City Bar Association Competition in 2018.

This year's teams will compete in the New York City Bar Association Moot Court Competition, the Chicago Bar Association Competition, and one other competition.
