The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — the cornerstone of American democracy — is the focus of the Seigenthaler-Sutherland Cup National First Amendment Moot Court Competition.
The Seigenthaler-Sutherland Cup National First Amendment Moot Court Competition will be conducted March 24-25, 2017, at the Columbus School of Law, The Catholic University of America; and at the Newseum, in Washington, D.C.
The competition attracts teams from leading law schools nationwide. During the two-day competition, teams argue hypothetical case based on a current First Amendment controversy before panels of accomplished jurists, legal scholars and attorneys.
