Moot Court is a highly competitive forensics event where participants provide oral arguments in an environment similar to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justices frequently interrupt the presenters to challenge assertions and to test the presenter’s knowledge of relevant case law.

The 2018-19 season featured over 400 teams from colleges across the nation competing in 13 national qualifying tournaments.

Other notable Patrick Henry College team placements include Thomas Doan/Benjamin Phibbs (semi-finalists), and Marina Barnes/Kyle Ziemnick (quarter-finalists).

Senior Clare Downing ranked 3rd in individual speaker awards, Michael Patton ranked 9th, Keely Wright ranked 12th, Micah Bock ranked 14th, and Samuel Bock, 22nd.

The Patrick Henry College roster of 2018-19 Moot Court National competitors included the following 16 students from 10 states:

- Marina Barnes | Chesapeake, VA
