Each year, the YLS hosts the CBA's Moot Court Competition. This year's competition will be held virtually on November 18-20, 2021. We are seeking volunteer attorneys to grade briefs and act as judges for this year's competition!

BRIEF GRADERS: Each brief grader will receive approximately 5 briefs, brief score sheets, and a summary of the case law and arguments expected from petitioner and respondent on both major issues. This year, the briefs will be e-mailed to you on or about October 25, 2021. All brief score sheets are due by Friday, November 5, 2021.
