About the Casebook

The NYU Moot Court Casebook, published annually, is the most widely recognized and utilized set of moot court problems in the nation. More than 100 law schools presently subscribe.

Each problem has two parts: a detailed record that contains all documents relevant to the hypothetical case, and a bench memo that surveys all relevant case law and policy analysis and includes sample briefs for both sides. Problems are written by current NYU Law students with faculty supervision as well as by students and faculty from across the country.

We have made our National Immigration Law Competition 2016 Problem available as a sample of a Record and a Bench Memo typical of the Casebook.

Our Casebook problems are ideal for use in moot court competitions and classroom exercises, or as a valuable resource for research on current circuit-splits. Each Volume contributes approximately 10-20 problems to our database of over 90 problems on a wide variety of legal topics.
