The annual final round argument of the Jenkins Honors Moot Court Competition will occur on Tuesday April 11, at 4 p.m. in the Appellate Courtroom of Eckstein Hall.
The student finalists will argue before a panel of distinguished judges. This year we are honored to have with us the Hon. Paul Watford, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit; the Hon. Amy St. Eve, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois; and the Hon. James Peterson, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.
The Jenkins Honors Moot Court Competition is the capstone event of the intramural moot court program at Marquette University Law School. Students won spots in the Jenkins Competition through their top performance in Appellate Writing and Advocacy this past fall.
The Jenkins Competition is named in honor of the late James G. Jenkins, the first Wisconsin judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and, subsequently, the first dean of Marquette University Law School (1908-1915).
Awards will be presented during a reception following the arguments.
