The Fitchburg State University Campus Center was abuzz today as the university once again hosts the American Moot Court Association's Eastern Regional Undergraduate Moot Court Qualifying Tournament. Student teams and coaches from as far away as California and Louisiana registered for the event this afternoon. Event coordinator, Economics, History and Political Science Professor Paul Weizer, welcomed volunteer judges, as well as the competing teams. This competition will span this afternoon and all day tomorrow.

Matthew Costello ‘13, Fitchburg State alumni Moot Court National Competition Winner,  was on hand to assist and reminisce with Professor Weizer. Good luck to all competitors!

Moot Court competition (simulated legal argumentation before hypothetical
appellate courts) has long been an educational opportunity limited to the law school environment. The ultimate goal of the American Moot Court Association (AMCA) is
to build a system of top-quality undergraduate moot court competitions in America.
