The inaugural Shapero Cup Regional Moot Court Competition (the “Regional”) is scheduled for Monday, February 18, 2019, at the U.S. Bankruptcy Courthouse in Detroit.
The Regional is open to law schools from the Sixth Circuit and is designed in part to serve as formal practice for law school teams competing in the Duberstein Moot Court Competition at St. John’s University School of Law in New York City in March (the “Duberstein Competition”). The Regional is not an elimination round for the Duberstein Competition. Rather, it is an opportunity for the student advocates to hone their skills on the same case problem they will argue in New York. The Shapero Cup will be judged by leading members of the bench and bar.
