CALLING ALL LAW STUDENTS! 

EDI HOSTS ADVOCACY COMPETITION

Tremendous anticipation awaited the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) in December 2015. Parties and practitioners were eager to see how new Rule 26(b)(1) would be interpreted by the courts. They did not have to wait long, as dozens of courts have provided judicial interpretation shortly after the amendments went into effect. 

Now, EDI is inviting law student advocates to battle to the death - excuse The Hunger Games reference, wrong event - we mean, write-in for a chance to argue in front of leading minds on Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for a chance to take the reins of academic achievement.  

Two winning briefs will win an all-expense paid trip to Fort Lauderdale, FL to argue before hundreds of practitioners attending the EDI Leadership Summit on October 13, 2016. Winning candidates could end up with the dream job they never thought was obtainable through EDI’s super-connected community – where top 20 schools + top 10% credentials mean much less than a candidate’s ability to grasp FRCP issues in writing.

The competition focuses on whether or not the 1978 Supreme Court case Oppenheimer Fund, Inc. v. Sanders is still valid law related to the scope of discovery after the 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
