The Law & Technology Institute and the Moot Court Association of The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, together with the Federal Communication Bar Association (FCBA) are pleased to announce that the 25th Annual National Telecommunications and Technology Moot Court Competition will be held on February 15–16, 2019, at the Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C.

The National Telecommunications and Technology Moot Court Competition provides students the opportunity to argue before private and government practitioners in the fields of communications and technology law. Past judges have included former FCC Commissioner Kathleen Abernathy, First Amendment advocate Robert Corn-Revere, Christopher Wright of Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP, and Google Director of Communications Law Austin Schlick. Each year, the competition problem, which is written by members of the FCBA, is “ripped from the headlines” of current technology, intellectual property, and telecommunications issues. Past topics have included consumer privacy of personal information, copyright protection of pre-1972 musical performances, and the enforcement of broadcast indecency standards.

An announcement and registration form are below. Registration has now officially closed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Moot Court Association at We look forward to seeing you in February.
