This year’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition moot court problem requires students to analyze a timely criminal topic involving a police shooting of an African-American boy. The issues focus on whether a police officer has a reasonable expectation of privacy in a work locker, and whether a police officer’s actions, within the course of employment, can constitute a hate crime.
The ABA invites you to judge the 2015-16 National Appellate Advocacy Competition. NAAC is one of the most prestigious moot court competitions in the country. Competition judges will have the opportunity to interact with the finest advocates that the nation’s law schools have to offer.
All NAAC judges must be licensed attorneys in the US.
Within 10 business days after receipt of your form, we will send an email confirming your judging assignment. We will provide a detailed bench memorandum, the problem (record), and instructions on judging. Reviewing these materials is the only preparation required of the oral competition judges.
If you have signed up and do not receive these materials within 10 days, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
