2012 McBaine Competition

The James Patterson McBaine Honors Competition is Boalt Hall’s venerable moot court competition and is open to all Boalt second- and third-year law students. Cases chosen for the competition involve cutting-edge issues of great public importance.

This year, we are proud to welcome Judge Marsha Berzon of the Ninth Circuit. Judge Berzon will be accompanied by two other distinguished jurists.
