National NALSA is Recruiting Judges for the 2015 Moot Court Competition

Here is the recruitment letter:

Letter to Recruit Juges for Moot Court

UPDATE — Also an email from the NNALSA board:

Greetings Friends and Colleagues,

The NALSA Chapter at the University of Arizona College of Law was chosen to host the 2015 National NALSA Moot Court Competition in Tucson, AZ on March 6-7, 2015.

 

The competition is expected to draw roughly 50-60 teams from law schools across the country. As both the President of the UofA NALSA Chapter and the Vice-President of National NALSA, I’m tasked with organizing and planning this competition. I am seeking attorneys from both inside and outside the Arizona legal community to serve as either brief judges or oral argument judges. Attached is a letter from me detailing the tasks of a brief and oral argument judge and a form is included for those interested in participating.

 

Please consider participating in the National NALSA Moot court competition. For more information on the competition (the moot court problem), see:

http://www.law.arizona.edu/iplp/moot_court/

 

The problem centers on Indian law, particularly a tribe’s civil jurisdiction. Please note that you don’t need a background in Indian law to judge because we, the host school, will provide a bench brief that will explain the issues, provide the relevant law, and provide arguments for both sides. This is a great opportunity to watch and help law students hone their advocacy and legal writing skills.
