Volunteers needed! 

It is time once again for the Giles S. Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition, hosted here in the Northeast Region by the BPLA.  As always, we need many volunteers to help out with judging for this competition to succeed.

The Northeast Regional competition will be held at Suffolk University School of Law in Boston on March 22 to 24, 2018.   The success of this competition is entirely due to the generosity of volunteers who take time to grade briefs and hear oral arguments.  All volunteers (graders and brief judges) are welcome to attend our cocktail reception on Friday, March 22 at 7pm at Suffolk Law.

Competition Judge:   Oral argument judges will score arguments as a member of a 3-judge panel, according to a rubric that will be provided. 

·        Friday, March 22 at 6 pm (followed by a cocktail reception) – 15 judges (5 arguments x 3 judges each)

·        Saturday, March 23 at noon (semi-finals) – 6 judges

·        Sunday, March 24 at noon (finals) – 3 judges

Each judge will also receive a copy of the problem, a bench memo and sample questions for participants, as well as a scoring rubric. 

Volunteering in the Giles S. Rich competition is an enjoyable experience: the briefs are interesting to read, the arguments lively to hear, and it's great to meet some of the up and coming students interested in IP.

You can email Emma Hall emma.hall@morganlewis.comor Carolina Säve  CSave@mintz.comto let us know your availability, especially if you can hear two arguments on Friday night.
