Judges Needed


Greetings!  As you know, every spring 1L students at CU Law School take a class in appellate advocacy. We are writing to ask you to volunteer as a judge for the Spring 2015 Oral Arguments.  This is a capstone experience for our first year students and your participation is highly valued.  

Oral arguments will take place this year from April 3rd to April 10th.  Most arguments will be held in Denver at the Tenth Circuit, and some will be held in Boulder at CU Law School. Unless otherwise indicated, the arguments will last approximately 2 hours each. 

If you are interested, please use our online RSVP form here.  We will send you a confirmation and reminder email, as well as materials related to the substance of the arguments you have signed up to hear. 

This year we are using two different problems:

The first problem, which is being used in sections taught by Todd Stafford, Gabrielle Stafford, and Natalie Mack, is an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit involving a motion to suppress evidence obtained after an apartment co-tenant consented to a premises search.

The second problem, which is being used in sections taught by Amy Bauer and Corie Rosen Felder, concerns an appeal to the Colorado Court of Appeals on a Motion to Suppress evidence gathered during a one-on-one show-up procedure. 

We hope you’ll be able to join us by volunteering your time.  This is a very special experience for our students and for the judges who participate, and we very much appreciate your involvement in preparing the next generation of lawyers.  Please feel free to pass this message along to others who you think would make excellent judges.

You may find the master schedule of Oral Arguments below.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
