Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School BMI National Moot Court Competition

In 1984, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law first hosted an Entertainment and Communications Law Moot Court Competition. The fourth competition, in 1987, marked the beginning of BMI’s (Broadcast Music, Inc.) involvement and co-sponsorship of the competition. Since these early beginnings, the competition has grown to 30 teams. In addition, the competition has drawn top judges and lawyers to offer their insight to the competitors.

In 2011, Thomas Bacon and Russell Kinsey were Quarterfinalists. In 2010, Mark Abellera and Katie Simpson-Jones were Quarterfinalists. In 2009, Andrew Cook and Justin Strane finished in First Place. In 2008, Wendy Bockelmann, Jennifer Eun, and Nicole Oyer finished in Second Place.
