ACB Fourth Circuit Moot Court, February 15, 2021
The Education Committee of the DC and Fourth Circuits is pleased to announce a 2021 American College of Bankruptcy Fourth Circuit Moot Court event. Please use this link to download an application packet.
The moot court will be held on ACB’s ZOOM platform from 9 a.m. though 3:15 p.m.
Applications are due December 11, 2020.
We anticipate three preliminary rounds with each team presenting arguments for the petitioner and the respondent, and a final round.
Teams do not need to submit briefs. Teams who have not prepared the brief required for the Duberstein, however, might be disadvantaged in preparing their arguments.
The competition will involve the same commercial law fact pattern as used for the Duberstein Moot Court Competition: https://www.stjohns.edu/law/academics/centers-and-clinics/29th-annual-duberstein-bankruptcy-moot-court-competition
Law schools may compete, at no cost, in the circuit regional. Teams from Brooklyn, Campbell and Howard law schools have already expressed some interest in participating. We can accept up to six schools, on a first to apply standard.
Please help us spread the word about this competition!
Interested in joining us to watch the moot court?
We expect the final round to begin around 2 p.m. Contact Education Committee Member Beth Wiggins, firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know your interest in attending the final round and in virtually toasting all the advocates after the final round.
