The award winning Mount Saint Mary’s team was founded in 2008 and has competed each year since at the American Collegiate Moot Court Association and other local competitions. Moot Court is a simulation of appellate argument in which each student must present her case before a panel of judges who question the student about the facts and law of the case before the “court.” The judges are lawyers, as well as actual state and federal judges.

- 2008: American Collegiate Moot Court Association: Best Attorney: Yevgeniya Kutepova
