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.
NYU School of Law hosted 26 student teams from law schools across the country at the 19th Annual Immigration Law Competition from February 2nd to February 4th, 2024. The Final Arguments were presided over by Hon. Eunice Lee of the Second Circuit, Hon. Roopali Desai of the Ninth Circuit, and Hon. Gregory Woods of the Southern District of New York. This year’s competition was presented with support from our sponsor, aiLegal Law.
