Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the National Veterans Law Moot Court Competition, formerly the Veterans Law Appellate Advocacy Competition. Now in its twelfth year, the competition brings teams of students from around the country to Washington, D.C., to argue before panels of distinguished practitioners and judges.

The 2021 Competition is now concluded. The preliminary and quarterfinal rounds of this year’s Competition were held virtually on November 6, 2021, with four teams advancing to the semifinal and final rounds held in person at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, DC, on November 13, 2021.  Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
