Immigration Law Competition


Started in 2006, NYU’s National Immigration Law Competition (ILC) is the NYU Moot Court Board’s annual external moot court competition, open to teams from ABA-accredited law schools other than NYU Law. The ILC focuses on cutting-edge issues in the field of immigration law and is judged by panels of distinguished NYU alumni and legal practitioners from throughout New York. The final round is judged by federal appellate and district court judges.

The 2018 National Immigration Law Competition is sponsored by Fragomen and will be hosted at NYU from February 2, 2018 through February 4, 2018. The application to register is here. The deadline to register is November 1, 2017.

You can find more details in the full Rules of the Competition (Annexes).

We’re always looking for more judges for our preliminary and semi-final rounds, so if you are a practicing attorney in the New York area with immigration interests or experience please contact us! All judges will receive CLE credit. If you would like to become a sponsor for next year, please contact us.

We hope to see you at the 2018 ILC !
