The School of Law sponsors several competition teams selected by a competitive process. Montana is a consistent contender both regionally and nationally. As one of the smallest law schools in the nation, we are proud of our teams' outstanding performance in interscholastic competitions. We owe our success to the dedication of our coaches, the quality of our students and our unique curriculum. Thank you to Cliff Edwards and other generous donors for supporting these competition teams.
