Out of the approximately 50 NYC teams that competed in the Moot Court tournament this week at Fordham Law School, Maspeth placed in the top 8! We have earned a spot in the semifinals, which will take place on November 25th.
Since the 1980’s, the Justice Resource Center has partnered with Fordham Law School to offer the MENTOR Moot Court competition to NYC high schools. Approximately 50 high school teams of eight students each compete in single-elimination rounds in November through December.
The MENTOR Moot Court competition is part of the MENTOR Law Program, a national program created by lawyers, which partners law firms with public high schools. MENTOR attorneys and law teachers coach students in legal research and oral advocacy skills based on the published MENTOR Moot Court case materials. All original materials are written by the Fordham Law School Moot Court Board.
