Moot for Kucana v. Holder, No. 08-911.
Amanda C. Leiter, a law professor from Washington D.C. and a former law clerk for Justice John Paul Stevens, is preparing to argue before the United States Supreme Court this November in a case on which Professor Jones is serving as co-counsel. A number of BYU second- and third-year law students have worked as research assistants on the brief, which was recently filed.
BYU Law School is fortunate to host a moot for this case, which will give students the rare opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to prepare for an oral argument before the Supreme Court. A top-notch panel of nine former U.S. Supreme Court clerks will be acting as Justices for the moot.
The moot proceedings are closed to the general public. Audience members will be required to observe a confidentiality agreement in order to attend, and must attest at entry that they are students or faculty at the J. Reuben Clark Law School and that they do not have a relationship with an opposing party or opposing counsel that presents a conflict of interest.
