National Health Law Moot Court Competition

HLMC court teams

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT: We are currently monitoring the situation related to the coronavirus pandemic. At this time, we are planning to hold the competition in Carbondale on Nov. 6 & 7. If, however, circumstances prevent that from happening, we will conduct the oral arguments online. That may require us to extend the competition one day before or after the scheduled dates. Our current policy allows teams to register but delay payment until September 3, and teams that have prepaid may withdraw for any reason and receive a full refund until that time. We will announce any changes in our competition format, rules and policies as early as we can.

For over twenty-five years, the Southern Illinois University School of Law, the Department of Medical Humanities at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, the American College of Legal Medicine, and the American College of Legal Medicine Foundation have sponsored the National Health Law Moot Court Competition. The Competition is held annually at the Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale, Illinois.
