Immigration Law Competition


Applications for 2017 ILC are now open! Click here for the application form! Deadline is NOVEMBER 1, 2016.

The National Immigration Law Competition is the Moot Court Board’s annual external moot court competition, open to teams from ABA-accredited law schools other than NYU Law.

Since starting in 2006, the Immigration Law Competition focuses on cutting-edge issues in the field of immigration law. Judged exclusively by immigration law professionals in the immigration capital of the Nation, the competition is the only one of its kind in the United States. You can find more details in the full Rules of the Competition.

Schools may apply to send up to two teams to the competition each year. Sixteen teams have been selected for the 2016 competition. Registration for the 2017 competition will open in October 2016. If you would like to be advised when the next round of registrations open, please contact us.

The Immigration Law Competition is judged by panels of distinguished NYU alumni and legal practitioners from throughout New York. All judges receive CLE credit for their participation. We’re always looking for more judges, so if you are a practicing attorney in the New York area with immigration interests or experience please do contact us and we will be sure to add you to our mailing list!

If you have any questions about the Immigration Law Competition, please contact us.
