Judges sought for MSU Law Spring Appellate Advocacy Competition

Michigan State University College of Law is seeking judges to judge 1L students in the 2018 Spring Appellate Advocacy Competition:

Saturday, April 7:
8:30 a.m.−12:30 p.m.
and 1:00 p.m.−5:00 p.m.

Monday, April 9:
5:15 p.m.−9:15 p.m.

Tuesday, April 10:
5:15 p.m.−9:15 p.m.

Wednesday, April 11:
5:15 p.m.−9:15 p.m.

Thursday, April 12:
5:15 p.m.−9:15 p.m.

This year’s problem involves the Fourth Amendment. The students will argue about whether the trial court properly decided that evidence found in a police search of the defendant’s home was admissible because, although the officers coerced the defendant to consent to a warrantless search, the evidence inevitably would have been discovered in a later search conducted pursuant to a warrant.

No experience in constitutional law or criminal law is necessary. Judges will receive additional information including potential questions and arguments approximately two weeks before the competition.

Please sign up before Wednesday, March 14 if possible, at http://www.law.msu.edu/rwa/judge-rounds.php

Any questions, call Teresa Cherry at (517) 432-6818 or email Professor Jeremy Francis at franc103@law.msu.edu.

Or, fax your reply, including available dates and contact information, to (517) 432-6879.
