Cardozo BMI Moot Court Helps Law Students Understand Intellectual Property Issues

Posted in News on March 27, 2019

For the 35th year, BMI partnered with Cardozo School of Law in what has now become the nation’s premier copyright and communications law moot court competition. The competition gives law students the unique opportunity to argue in front of legal practitioners and scholars working in the New York City area – many of whom practice and teach intellectual property law. This year, the event, which took place March 14-17, welcomed 22 law schools from across the nation to participate. During the final round, distinguished federal appellate and district court judges determined Fordham Law School to be the winner. Pictured (L-R) at the moot court competition are: Hilary McDonnell, Fordham Law Coach; Hon. Sanket J. Bulsara, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York; Lisa Cordara, Fordham Law winner; Hon. Denny Chin, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit; Dorothy Newman, Fordham Law winner; Hon. Ona T. Wang, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York; Vikram Paul, Fordham Law Coach; and BMI Vice President, Legal Affairs, Joe DiMona.
