New York University School of Law will be hosting thes third annual Immigration Law Moot Court Competition the weekend of February 21-24, 2008. Teams of 2-3 students from law schools around the country will brief and argue current issues in immigration law. Last year, the problem presented difficult questions about judicial review and asylum. The final argument took place before a distinguished panel of judges: Judge Lipez of the First Circuit, Judge Marcus of the Eleventh Circuit, and Juan Osuna, the Chairman of the Board of Immigration Appeals. This year, there will be an equally impressive group of judges and a problem that addresses important immigration concerns. Any law students or professors interested in sending a team to the competition should visit the Moot Court Board’s website at http://www.law.nyu.edu/journals/mootcourt/competition.html or contact NYU’s Immigration Law Competition Editor, Lee Turner-Dodge, at email@example.com. The registration deadline is October 26, 2007.
