Fordham Law School is hosting the 2011 Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Securities Law Moot Court Competition, which will take place in NYC March 25-27, 2011. The Competition offers teams the opportunity to test appellate advocacy skills before leading jurists, securities regulators, academics, and practitioners. Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh (D.C. Cir.), Judge Paul J. Kelly, Jr. (10th Cir.), Judge Boyce F. Martin, Jr. (6th Cir.), S.E.C. Commissioner Troy A. Paredes, and Judge Richard A. Posner (7th Cir.) have agreed to serve as the final round panel.
Fordham is now seeking a few teams to round out the competition (registration deadline is Dec. 6), and a bevy of practitioners to serve as preliminary round judges and grade competitor briefs. They need help from anyone interested, with all levels of experience, whether in litigation, transactions, securities, finance, in-house, or public service, and CLE credit is available. Additional information and online sign-up is at law.fordham.edu/kaufmanjudge.
