Kaufman Securities Law Competition at Fordham

Our friends at Fordham Law have asked for some help in reaching out to our readers.  If you are in NYC and can find time to participate, these are great experiences for students. See below:

Each spring, Fordham University School of Law hosts the Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Securities Law Moot Court Competition.  Held in honor of Chief Judge Kaufman, a Fordham Alumnus who served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the Kaufman Competition has a rich tradition of bringing together complex securities law issues, talented student advocates, and top legal minds.    

 The year’s Kaufman Competition will take place on March 23, 2012 to March 25, 2012.

Our esteemed final round panel includes Judge Paul J. Kelly, Jr., of the Tenth Circuit; Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, of the Ninth Circuit; Judge Boyce F. Martin, Jr., of the Sixth Circuit; Judge Richard A. Posner, of the Seventh Circuit; Judge Jane Richards Roth, of the Third Circuit; and Commissioner Troy A. Paredes, of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

 We are currently soliciting practitioners and academics to judge oral argument rounds and grade competition briefs.  No securities law experience is required to participate and CLE credit is available.

Information about the Kaufman Competition and an online Judge Registration Form is available on our website, www.law.fordham.edu/kaufman.  Please contact Michael A. Kitson, Kaufman Editor, at [email protected] or (212) 636-6882 with any questions.

Happy Thanksgiving! Go eat some turkey.
