Pepperdine Law Moot Court Program Ranked Among Nation's Best

#2 in California

1 min read

This year, The University of Houston's Blakely Advocacy Institute ranked Pepperdine Law as one of the best schools for moot court. Pepperdine is #11 overall and #2 in the state of Calfornia. 

The University of Houston Law Center’s Blakely Advocacy Institute uses a scoring system that assesses the quality of the competitions a school participated in, the size of the competitions and the school’s performance in those competitions to determine the top 16 programs in the nation.

The nation’s top moot court programs all have several things in common: They are stacked with competitive and driven students; they are led by dedicated volunteer coaches and faculty members; and they are focused on teaching transferable skills. Perhaps most important, however, is that training students for the practice of law is their top priority. Winning championships is a just a happy side effect.
