Professors, practitioners, and competitors will discuss the Fourth Circuit case of United States v. Robinson from the Hardt Cup Moot Court Tournament this year. The case involves wide-ranging and overlapping issues regarding high-crime areas and relationships with police, gun rights, and 4th amendment protections against unreasonable search-and-seizure. Attendees will have the chance to learn about these important Constitutional issues and ask questions about how courts will likely approach similar issues in the future. Professors Lisa K. Griffin and Guy-Uriel Charles, as well as First Assistant Federal Public Defender for the Eastern District of North Carolina, G. Alan DuBois will speak on the issue. Venezuelan food from Guasaca will be served. Sponsored by the Moot Court Board. For more information, please contact the Moot Court Board President, Trevor Chenoweth, at
