Duquesne Law hosts arbitration competition
Duquesne Law will host the American Bar Association Law Student Division Arbitration Competition here on Nov. 18 and 19, 2017. Duquesne Law's Appellate Moot Court Board (AMCB), a student-run organization devoted excellence in legal advocacy, will welcome teams from 10 law schools in the regional section. Each school will compete in two rounds and the top four teams will advance to the semifinals. The winner of the competition here will advance to the national finals held January 19 and 20, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois.
The ABA's arbitration competition simulates a realistic arbitration hearing and provides participants with an opportunity to experience what it is to be a professional, competent, and ethical advocate. Teams of four J.D. candidates compete by preparing and presenting opening statements, witness examinations, exhibit introductions, evidentiary presentations, and summations.
