American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition

The American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition focuses on topics of general legal interest attracting students from across the nation. Among recent topics: whether felon disenfranchisement laws violate the Fourteenth Amendment; whether the search incident to arrest doctrine should be modified to ask whether evidence may be found in the vehicle and whether a judge violated the sentencing reform act when requiring a student to pass out flyers regarding his crime on campus. Winners of regional rounds advance to national rounds.
