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 will be announced. 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. Please come support your fellow students and see these excellent competitors in action. This event will be webcast.
