First, "CAP" stands for "Competitive Advocacy Program," and it represent not only the traditional "trial teams," but also alternative dispute resolution and mediation teams at California Western School of Law. "MCHB" refers to the Moot Court Honors Board - the organization that helps lead and facilitate the CAP program, and one of the most prestigious organizations on campus.

California Western CAP teams and moot court programs have a nationally recognized history of success. Recently, California Western teams won national titles at the UC Davis Asylum and Refugee Law National Appellate Moot Court Competition, the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ) National Criminal Trial Advocacy Competition in San Francisco, and the Regional ABA Negotiation Competition in Utah.
