School of Law Moot Court Program Receives High Rankings
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
The moot court program at Pepperdine School of Law has been ranked number two in California and number 11 in the United States for the 2016–2017 moot court competition season by the Blakely Advocacy Institute at the University of Houston Law Center.
The Blakely Advocacy Institute ranks law schools annually based on the results of moot court competitions in which teams receive scores. Pepperdine Law advocates earned top scores at the American Bar Association NAAC Regional Competition, Asylum and Refugee Law Competition, Chicago Bar Association Competition, Stetson International Environmental Law Competition, Traynor Moot Court Competition, Tulane Sports Law Competition, and UCLA Cyber Crimes Competition.
As a result of its high ranking, Pepperdine Law has been invited to compete in the 2018 Andrews Kurth Kenyon Moot Court National Championship, which determines the “best of the best” moot court program. The championship competition will take place in Houston in January 2018.
