Registration & Contact Information

The John Marshall Law School's Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law cordially invites your school to participate in the 33rd Annual International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law. Up to 40 teams will be selected to participate, with preference given to teams that register early. The winning briefs will be published in The John Marshall Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law, the premier academic publication in its field.

Each school may enter one team consisting of two or three members. The team will submit a written brief in September. While only two team members are permitted to participate in a single round of oral arguments, all three members may argue during the competition. Team members must not have completed a degree in law as of the competition date.

Registration Opens: Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Notification will be emailed on or around June 28, 2014, and briefs will be due Wednesday, October 1, 2014. International teams are required to confirm their ability to attend the competition by October 15, 2014. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the competition. Upon arrival, international teams are also required to provide the Competition Organizing Committee with a local Chicago contact number for facilitating communication between the teams and the Moot Court Committee.
