LCCHP Congratulates Winners of 2011 Moot Court Competition

20110226_097LCCHP and DePaul University College of Law held the second annual National Cultural Heritage Law Moot Court Competition on 25-26 February 2011 at the Everett McKinley Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in Chicago. Seventeen teams from around the country competed in front of 75 judges, including nationally renowned experts in cultural property law, and judges from the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. This year's problem addressed the Immunity from Seizure Act and the recovery of stolen art works.

We congratulate this year's first place team from Chicago-Kent School of Law and runner-up from South Texas College of Law. We also thank everyone who made the competition possible, particularly our many brief graders and judges.
