By Kaitlyn Sweeney

The UCF Moot Court Program has grown exponentially since its creation, gaining more success with each year. It has always been clear to the Department of Legal Studies just how wonderful this program is, but recently the program received national acclaim.

The American Moot Court Association (ACMA) published an online list of the top 25 programs in Intercollegiate Moot Court.  ACMA ranked the UCF Moot Court Program in the 5th place spot, tied with Texas A&M. The list of the top 25 programs was chosen from a field of 360 teams.  

This ranking is a clear representation of how much the UCF Moot Court Program has grown and flourished since its creation. Just last year UCF's program sent four teams to the National Moot Court Tournament, doubling its participation from the year prior. In that tournament, two UCF Moot Court members were ranked among the top 15 orators in the country.

The Department of Legal Studies is extremely proud of the UCF Moot Court Program and is honored by this national ranking. Stay tuned to see how well the UCF Moot Court Program performs during this year's competition season!
