Regional Tournament Information

The American Moot Court Association's official Midwest Regional Tournament, takes place at the end of the fall semester at The College of Wooster. This year's virtual tournament will be held on November 20 and 21, 2020, via Zoom.

Virtual regional tournaments act as qualifying tournaments for teams wishing to compete at the AMCA National Tournament in January 2021. The top 16% of teams competing at each regional will receive an automatic invitation to the national tournament. To compete in the national tournament, teams must first compete in an AMCA sanctioned regional tournament.

At the virtual regional tournaments, two-person teams will be required to present oral arguments in three preliminary rounds on Friday afternoon, November 20. Each team will represent both petitioner and respondent. Order of argument and matching teams will be determined randomly. We will break 16 teams into the finals, holding four rounds on Saturday, November 21, in single elimination rounds.
