Wagner Competition

Wagner Competition Update: 

Out of an abundance of caution with the recent and quickly shifting coronavirus updates in New York, NYLS’s administration has decided to cancel the Wagner competition. See our community updates here.

We recognize the immense effort you have put into preparing for the competition and the travel disruptions this will cause. We did not make this decision lightly but believe it is the right step to protect the health and well-being of our community and yours, based on the information currently available to us.

NYLS will gladly refund all conference registration fees and will be happy to work with you on canceling any reservations locally if needed, including providing letters to airlines and hotels. If you have any questions, please contact wagner.moot@nyls.edu.

Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

The Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court 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 NYLS Moot Court Association sponsors this competition in honor of the late U.S. Senator, Robert F. Wagner, our distinguished alumnus.

The 44th Annual Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition

The Moot Court Association invites you to the 44th Annual 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 annually competed in this prestigious event. As we continue this great tradition, we are looking for ways to improve the rewarding experience for our competitors.

As such, we would like to announce two exciting new changes to our rules. On the first day of the competition, competitors will be scheduled for two preliminary rounds instead of the customary three. Also, competitors will receive a physical copy of their oral argument scoresheets after each round. We believe that these changes will help improve the competitors’ performance in future rounds and their overall competition experiences.
