The 38th Annual Robert F. Wagner National Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition
Each spring, the New York Law School Moot Court Association administers the Robert F. Wagner National Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition in honor of the late U.S. Senator and distinguished alumnus. The competition is the nation’s largest student-run moot court competition and the premier national competition dedicated exclusively to labor and employment law. For over 30 years, schools from across the country have competed in this prestigious event.
The 38th Annual Robert F. Wagner Labor and Employment Law Competition will be held March 19–23, 2014. This year’s Wagner Reception will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014, where there will be hors d’oeuvres, a jazz band, and an awards ceremony. Additionally, this year, we have reached out to local hotels to provide teams with a discount for room accommodations. We have reserved a limited number of rooms at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott, Cosmopolitan Hotel Tribeca, Sheraton Tribeca, and the New York Marriott Downtown. Upon registration, we will provide competitors with all necessary details.
The fact pattern and rules were released January 12, 2014, and competitors’ briefs were due no later than February 13, 2014, at 11:59 p.m. (EST).
