Law students at the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project gain experience preparing high school students for a national moot court competition.

The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project is a nationally recognized law related education program that places talented upper level law students in under-resourced urban and rural high schools to teach courses in constitutional law and oral advocacy. After the program was established at American University Washington College of Law in 1999, Rutgers in Camden opened the second law school chapter. Now, with approximately 18 active chapters across the country, law students prepare high school students for a national moot court competition each spring for up to 100 high school competitors. This year’s problem concerns a high school student suspended from school for an Instagram post he created on his home computer. The 2020 and 2021 competitions will be held in Camden, and we need you as judges (greatest need is Saturday, March 28, with morning and afternoon shifts). We supply a short bench memo, very short case summaries, and proposed questions. We also feed you! Please register here if you are interested.
