The Moot Court Honor Society is a competition-based organization at Cardozo. In addition to participating in approximately six competitions each semester, the organization also hosts the Paulsen Intramural Moot Court Competition in the fall, as well as the Monroe Price Media Law Competition and the Cardozo/BMI Moot Court Competition each spring.

The Moot Court Honor Society is structured like a publication, with oralists, editors, and staff selected on the basis of grades, writing ability, and oral advocacy skills. The organization is entirely student run and is advised by Professor Deborah Pearlstein. Selected students participate in numerous national and regional moot court competitions, writing advocacy briefs for competitions and preparing for oral argument. Members also prepare the problems and bench memos for interscholastic and intramural competitions.
