Registration Open for NLLSA’s Fourth Annual Moot Court Competition, September 29-30, 2011

In NLLSA on June 2, 2011 by NLLSA Chair, 2010-2011

The National Latina/o Law Student Association (NLLSA) is proud to announce that registration is now open for the Fourth Annual NLLSA Moot Court Competition, which will be held

Thursday, September 29 – Friday, September 30, 2011
Tulane University Law School and
Loyola University New Orleans College of Law
New Orleans, Louisiana

The deadline to submit the Notice of Intent to Participate Form is Friday, June 24 at 5 PM EST.

Tentatively, the problem for this year’s Competition will be released on Friday, July 1, and Briefs will be due Friday, August 12.

The National Latina/o Law Student Association’s Annual Moot Court Competition is an opportunity for law students to hone their legal research, writing and oral advocacy skills while competing against students from across the country.  At the Competition, students will practice their litigation abilities in front of legal practitioners and will receive feedback and advice indispensable to any lawyer considering a career in litigation.

NLLSA’s Moot Court Competition also gives the students the opportunity to become experts in a contemporary and controversial area of the law.  Last year, participants considered whether the Immigration and Nationality Act could impose different residency requirements on unwed citizen-fathers as compared to unwed citizen-mothers whose foreign-born children seek derivative citizenship, paralleling a case that was being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court, Flores-Villar v. United States.

For more information about this year’s Competition, please contact NLLSA’s Attorney General, Alex Uballez, at attorneygeneral@nllsa.org or visit http://www.nllsa.org/mootcourt.
