Each spring, Fordham University School of Law hosts the Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Securities Law Moot Court Competition. This year’s Kaufman Competition will take place on March 22-24, 2013. The competition focuses on two issues that arise in the fallout of Ponzi schemes: whether the “stockbroker safe harbor” of the Bankruptcy Code applies to Ponzi scheme operators, and the application of SLUSA, which was recently granted cert by the Supreme Court.
With the Competition fast approaching, the Competition still needs a few good lawyers to judge oral argument rounds. No securities law experience is required to participate and CLE credit is available. You can register online to serve as a judge.
Please contact Michael N. Fresco, Kaufman Editor, at KaufmanMC@law.fordham.edu or (561) 707-8328 with any questions.
