Please join NYU Law’s Moot Court Board and American Constitution Society at the first Art of Advocacy event this year! Art of Advocacy is a lunch series sponsored by the law school where we bring in different speakers to discuss litigation strategy and oral/written advocacy. These events are open to all students with attendance at each event determined through a lottery system. This system ensures that the lunches feel more like conversations and less like lectures.
The Art of Advocacy’s first guest will be First Mondays. First Mondays is a podcast about the Supreme Court, co-hosted by Dan Epps and Ian Samuel. First Mondays will provide a birds’ eye view on the construction of Supreme Court litigation strategy, particularly with a new member on the court, followed by an open Q&A with students. To enter, please sign up with this link (https://goo.gl/forms/2LKBGfV6RLU983Gm1) by no later than WEDNESDAY, September 13th at 5pm. Successful entrants will be notified on the evening of September 13th.
