Who We Are
Duke Moot Court (DMC) is an undergraduate organization which connects students to faculty and prelaw resources and travels the country to debate constitutional law in fully-sponsored tournaments and conferences.
Last year, members of Duke Moot Court competed in regional tournaments across various states, winning multiple attorney awards, and earning spots at the 2020 National Championship in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Moot court alumni have gone on to win the Marshall Scholarship, report for the Wall Street Journal, attend the Wharton School of Business, and study law at Harvard University, Stanford University, Georgetown University, and University of Virginia.
DMC High School Tournament
We're excited to host all of our teams in March!
The Duke Moot Court Association High School Tournament is an event being hosted by the members of the Duke Moot Court team. This spring, the tournament will be held virtually over Zoom from March 6-7, 2021. The Zoom link will be provided shortly before the tournament.
Registration will go live at 6:00 pm EST on Tuesday, December 22nd and close at 6:00 pm EST on January 3rd. Due to heightened interest this year, the tournament will be capped at 80 teams. We may increase the cap if possible at a later date. Any teams who register after that cap has been reached will be placed on a waitlist in the order that they register. No school may currently register more than 6 teams. The link to the Google form can be found here:
