Wagner Competition

The 42nd Annual Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition

Each Spring, the New York Law School Moot Court Association administers the Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition.  For over forty years, as many as fifty schools from across the country have competed in this prestigious event.

The Wagner Competition is the nation’s largest student-run moot court competition and the premier national competition dedicated exclusively to the areas of labor and employment law. The Moot Court Association sponsors this competition in honor of the late United States Senator, Robert F. Wagner, our distinguished alumnus.

The 42nd Annual Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition will be held Friday, March 9, 2018 through Sunday, March 11, 2018. Registration will open on Monday, October 2, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. (EST). At that time, a link will be placed on this website where schools will be able to register up to two (2) teams. Registration will then close on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. (EST), or once we have reached a total of fifty (50) teams registered to compete.

The non-refundable registration fee for this year’s competition is $640 per team.  This fee includes entry into the competition and two (2) tickets to the awards ceremony/cocktail reception. Teams may purchase additional non-refundable reception tickets for $80 each.
