Wagner Competition

The 39th 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 and Employment Law Moot Court Competition. For over thirty 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 39th Annual Robert F. Wagner Labor and Employment Law Competition will be held March 18-22, 2015. Registration will open at 1:30 p.m. (EST) on October 1, 2014. At that time, a link will be placed on this website where schools will be able to register up to (2) teams. Registration will then close either on December 1, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. (EST) or once we have reached a total of 46 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 tickets to the awards ceremony/cocktail reception, the Wagner Ball. Teams may purchase additional non-refundable tickets for $80 each.
