Hawaii Law School Release on NNALSA Moot Court

MORE THAN 100 LAW STUDENTS TO COMPETE IN HAWAIʻI

HONOLULU, HAWAIʻI: Law students representing 28 law schools will argue for and against native political recognition, as well as a native government’s right to determine its membership, when they compete in the 20th annual National Native American Law Students Association’s moot court competition. The upcoming competition, hosted at the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, will take place on February 24-25, 2012. A symposium on the issues highlighted in the problem will take place the day after the competition on Sunday, February 26, 2012.

UH Law Associate Professor and Director of Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law, Melody K. MacKenzie authored the competition problem. Three outside reviewers also reviewed the problem to ensure its fairness and accuracy. Designed to simulate the practice of law, the annual event requires competing law students in 2-person teams to conduct research and write legal briefs, without assistance from professors or others, and argue against other student teams at the competition.

Participating law schools include Arizona State University, Columbia, Cornell, UCLA, the University of Michigan, and the University of Washington, and 22 others.

Competition organizers are hoping to recruit more attorneys to serve as competition judges over the two-day event.

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is a lead sponsor of the event.

Hawai`i’s only law school last hosted this competition in 2000 shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court decided Rice v. Cayetano. That case resolved whether non-Hawaiians may vote in elections for trustees of the office of Hawaiian Affairs.

Derek Kauanoe, an event organizer noted, “we’re very excited to host the 20th annual event and to have so many competitors. It’s an opportunity to focus on some of the issues important to the Native Hawaiian community and to educate law students and attorneys across the U.S. about those matters.”

National NALSA Moot Court Brief Judges Needed

From Shawn Watts:

Aloha!

Now that the holidays are coming to close, we are reaching out in hopes that you are willing to score briefs for the NNALSA Moot Court Competition.
We hope to get about 60 volunteers to score briefs, but we are far short as of now. If we do get 60, that will mean each judge will have three or fewer briefs to score. We have changed the moot court rules so that briefs will be submitted electronically. That means it will be easier to get the briefs to you and for you to get them back to us.
Signing up to score briefs is easier than ever thanks to this website that Hawaii has set up to streamline the process:
So, if you are willing to score briefs, sign up at the site above. Or, if you have questions about the process, please contact the competition organizer Maria Carmichael at maria.ann.carmichael@gmail.com, Derek Kauanoe at derek.kauanoe@gmail.com, or the competition administrator, National NALSA vice president, James Simermeyer at simermja@law.unm.edu.
The competition is just around the corner and we need your help to make the experience a rewarding one for the competitors!
