In addition to these “intramural” programs, Columbia participates in a number of national moot court competitions, including, the Frederick Douglass Moot Court, the National Native American Law Student Association Moot Court, the Giles Sutherland Rich Moot Court (American Intellectual Property Law Association), and the Environmental Law Moot Court.
