We are pleased to announce that the second annual 2007 Immigration Law Moot
Court Competition will take place at NYU School of Law in Greenwich Village,
New York City, on February 22-25, 2007. We hope that you will encourage
your students to enter this competition, which will give them valuable
appellate brief-writing and oral advocacy experience, while developing their
knowledge of current key issues in immigration law.
The competition is open to 16 teams, which may consist of two or three law
students. We do not require participants to be members of moot court teams
or other similar programs at their law schools, and we particularly wish to
encourage the participation of students with strong interest in the topic of
The double-issue problem is created by members of the NYU Moot Court Board's
highly regarded Casebook Division, and will address topics on which the
Circuit Courts of Appeals are currently split. Teams will submit briefs
prior to the competition, and will argue at least four times at the
tournament before panels of judges (many of whom are attorneys, professors
and judges specializing in immigration law).
Applications to participate in the competition must be received no later
than Monday, October 16. There is no application fee, but participating
teams will have to submit a registration fee of $300 by December 1.
