Thomas Tang Moot Court Competition 2011
The Thomas Tang Moot Court Competition is a unique way of gaining experience in appellate advocacy for law students. Each year, the problem features a topic of interest to the Asian Pacific American community. Teams of two, preferably from the same law school and having completed their first year of law school, write an appellate brief and argue both sides of the issue. You do not have to be a member of your school’s Moot Court Honor Society or be Asian Pacific American – all upperclass law students are welcome to participate.
The Northeast Regional competition will be in Philadelphia, PA on October 21-22. The top two or three teams will advance to the National competition in Atlanta, GA on November 18-19.
In addition to the honor of participating in a very competitive competition, the winners of the National Competition receive a share of $10,000 in scholarship money provided by the NAPABA Law Foundation.
The registration deadline is September 23, 2011, but law students should sign up now to maximize the amount of time available to work on the problem. Visit the NAPABA Thomas Tang website here.
