Competition Information for Judges Only

The success, popularity and growth of any moot court competition depends largely upon the quality of its judges.

For over 30 years, The John Marshall Law School International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law has been adjudicated by an exceptional group of judges from every level of federal and state courts, experienced technology and privacy law practitioners, and legal scholars. Many of our judges have returned year after year. Because of their generous contributions of time and experience, this competition has become know as one of the finest legal honors programs in the world.

Beginning with the inaugural competition in 1982, judges have challenged and motivated our competitors to achieve excellence in oral advocacy. The tradition of exceptional benches has continued throughout the history of the competition.

If you would like to join the ranks of these extraordinary people or for more information about the competition, please contact the competition coordinator at, or simply fill out the Judges' Questionnaire and email to the above address or fax to Ralph Ruebner at 312.427.5280.
