Orison S. Marden Moot Court Competition: Final Argument

Posted on

Tuesday, March 26

5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Greenberg Lounge

Named for the famous NYU Alumnus, the Orison S. Marden Competition is an annual, school-wide moot court tournament open to all second-year and third-year students. The NYU Moot Court Board administers the competition and drafts the problems for both the Fall Elimination and Spring Semifinal Rounds.

The Final Argument of the Marden Competition will feature four of your peers arguing before a panel of federal judges. The Moot Court Board will welcome Judge Padmanabhan Srikanth β€œSri” Srinivasan of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Judge Jane B. Stranch of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and Judge Diane P. Wood of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit as panelists.

The case in question is Chase v. Plainsboro University, presenting questions about (1) whether Title VII displaces Title IX with respect to sex discrimination claims in the employment context against educational institutions that receive federal funding and (2) whether but-for causation or motivating factor is the appropriate standard of causation for Title IX retaliation claims.

Please RSVP by March 25st.
