Duquesne University School of Law

Appellate Advocacy Program

The award-winning Duquesne University School of Law Appellate Moot Court Board (AMCB) is a student-run organization devoted to the development of excellence in legal advocacy. The AMCB requires the highest standards of academic excellence and personal integrity in order to earn and maintain membership.

Students have the opportunity to earn between one (1) and seven (7) academic credits through membership, enrollment in an appellate advocacy class, and if given the opportunity, participation in one or more national or regional competitions.

The results are impressive. Students leave the program with new legal research, writing, and advocacy skills. Duquesne Law's AMBC teams have a notable record of wins and individual student honors in appellate moot court, arbitration, and negotiation competitions across the country.
