The National Black Law Students Association ("NBLSA") is seeking judges for its virtual 2020-2021 Regional Thurgood Marshall Moot Court Competition. 

The NBLSA has been hosting the Thurgood Marshall Moot Court Competition (formerly known as the Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition) since 1975. Each year, law students across the country participate in six regional competitions and the top three teams from each region advance to the national competition. Each team consists of two law students who submit a brief and present a 30-minute oral argument before a panel of judges acting as the United States Supreme Court. This year all competitions will be held virtually.
