Columbia Law School’s Moot Court Program is made possible by the generous support of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP. We offer thanks to Columbia Law School Professor Richard Briffault for his help devising the problem concept and Professor Gillian E. Metzger ’96 for her help thinking through the intricacies of standing, as well as Alan M. Trammell and James Nelson for their help in navigating overbreadth and commercial speech. We would also like to thank Professors Vincent Blasi, James S. Liebman, and David Pozen for their help consulting on our problem idea. Much appreciation is also extended to Professor Philip M. Genty and Ilene Strauss, lecturer in law and director of legal writing and moot court programs, for their support throughout the competition.
Most special thanks to Mike Jaoude ’16, whose help and support was simply invaluable throughout the competition.
