NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The 25th annual National First Amendment Moot Court Competition is set for Feb. 19-20, 2015, at the John Seigenthaler Center, home to the First Amendment Center, and at the Vanderbilt University Law School.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — the cornerstone of American democracy — is the focus of the National First Amendment Moot Court Competition.

The annual competition attracts teams from leading law schools nationwide. Recognized as one of the nation’s finest constitutional-law competitions, this annual event features a current First Amendment issue.

During the two-day competition, each team will participate in a minimum of four rounds, arguing a hypothetical case based on a current First Amendment controversy before panels of accomplished jurists, legal scholars and attorneys.
