Albert R. Mugel National Tax Moot Court Competition

This competition features teams from law schools across the United States arguing a tax problem.

The Albert R. Mugel National Tax Moot Court Competition unites teams from law schools across the United States who compete in presenting appellate arguments on a complex and thorny tax situation.  Past competitors have said that the competition has been “incredibly well run” and includes “excellent judges.”  One 2017 team noted that “we learned a lot and had a great time in a fun city!”

Hosted by the University at Buffalo School of Law for more than thirty years, the Mugel Competition is the oldest national tax moot court competition in the United States. Each year, the Mugel Competition gives law students from across the nation an opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in oral advocacy and brief writing on a cutting-edge issue of federal tax law and policy.

In 2018, the Mugel Competition will be taking a one-year hiatus. The competition is on track for competing in 2019 and looks forward to welcoming students to Buffalo for another great competition. Please contact law-advocacy@buffalo.edu with any questions.
