Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project Local Moot Court Competition
Start Date: 2/6/2016Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 2/6/2016End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:

The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project is named in honor of Justices Thurgood Marshall and William J. Brennan, Jr., and exists in a limited number of law schools across the country. The goals of the Project are expansive: “to uplift constitutional understanding, advance democratic values, and promote young people’s engagement in politics and government.”

Each year, students accepted into the year-long Project – known as Marshall-Brennan Fellows – have the rare opportunity to study constitutional law with Suffolk Law Professors Robert Smith and Kim McLaurin and simultaneously teach it to Boston-area high school students in urban minority population areas. 

Coinciding with their coursework, Fellows teach at local schools throughout the year.  As part of the teaching experience, Fellows work with high school students to prepare for a regional moot court competition each year.
