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.
**Due to the COVID pandemic, the 2020 Preliminary and Quarterfinal Rounds will be held virtually. Once the four semi-finalist teams are determined, they will receive reasonable funded round trip travel and hotel in Washington, DC to argue live before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, with appropriate social distancing practices. It is the hope and the desire of the competition organizers to host the Semifinals and Finals live in Washington, DC, but it is impossible to predict the future in these uncertain times. The NVLMCC will re-evaluate the ability to host the live portion of the competition by on or before September 1, 2020.**
