From 2007 to 2014, the National Moot Court Team represented the law school at the William E. McGee Civil Rights Moot Court Competition, which simulates an argument before the United States Supreme Court on an actual case on certiorari. The team is selected annually through an audition process early in the fall semester that is open to second- and third-year students.

The National Moot Court Team won the McGee Civil Rights Moot Court in three consecutive years (2009 through 2011). A member of the team received top speaker honors in each of those years. It also received second-place honors in 2013.

The National Moot Court Team also competes annually in the American Bar Association's National Appellate Advocacy Competition, where it won the national championship in 2012. The team is selected annually through an audition process early in the fall semester that is open to second- and third-year students.
