5th Annual NLLSA Moot Court Competition to be held Oct. 4-5, 2012, at UCLA School of Law in Los Angeles, California

In NLLSA on May 20, 2012 by NLLSA Chair

On behalf of the 2011-2012 NLLSA Executive Board, I am delighted to invite you to compete in the Fifth Annual National Latina/o Association Moot Court Competition.  This year the competition will be taking place in Los Angeles, California at the 16th Annual Conference on October 4-5, at UCLA School of Law.

NLLSA is a progressive organization dedicated to promoting and sustaining the academic success of Latina/o law students as well as to encouraging the discussion of issues relevant to the Latina/o population.  As the largest minority in the United States, it is valuable to create a forum where Latina/o law students can vibrantly debate contemporary legal issues that affect our community.

We have consistently focused on Moot Court topics relevant to the Latina/o community.  Last year in New Orleans, participants of the 4th Annual moot Court Competition debated the constitutional questions raised by the enactment of Arizona’s SB1070.  This year, we have selected a topic that addresses another timely issue facing our community.

It is a great pleasure to present this great opportunity for Latina/o law students to engage with a moot court topic significant to our community while they are able to sharpen their advocacy skills through fervent competition against students from across the country.  Please remember to submit your team’s Notice of Intent to Participate to me at attorneygeneral@nllsa.org on June 30, 2012, before 5:00 p.m. Central Time.

Good luck to all the participants, and I look forward to a stimulating competition.

Sincerely,

Ernie Dominguez-Rodriguez

Attorney General, NLLSA
