The Moot Court Board consists of second- and third-year students who have an interest in Appellate Advocacy. Every year the Moot Court Board organizes three intraschool competitions, the Armand Arabian Appellate Advocacy Tournament in the fall semester, the Vincent S. Dalsimer Moot Court Competition and the John L. Moriarity First-Year Moot Court Competition in the spring semester. In addition, every fall semester, the Moot Court Board hosts the National Entertainment Moot Court Competition, which features student teams from law schools across the country.

The Moot Court Board is entirely student-run, and all of the intraschool competitions are organized by the students. Board members prepare the problem and bench brief for the competitions, and act as officers, tournament coordinators, bailiffs and timekeepers.
