Duke Law | Dean's Cup Final Round 2013

February 25, 2013

The Duke Law Moot Court Board invites you to the final round of this year's Dean's Cup, Duke's premier oral advocacy competition. The problem involves a constitutional challenge by indigent plaintiffs to Tennessee's felon re-enfranchisement statute, which requires felons to pay all child support and restitution obligations before they can regain their right to vote. The student finalists are second-year students Shifali Baliga and Nina Gupta with Casteel Scherger '14 and Oscar Shine '13. This year's esteemed panel of judges are Hon. Marjorie Rendell (3d Cir.), Hon. Andre Davis (4th Cir.), and Hon. Catherine Eagles (M.D.N.C.). The competition will be followed by a light reception.
