Chicago-Kent to participate in the inaugural Frank A. Schreck Gaming Law Moot Court Competition
Matt Cannon, Nicholas Dollenmaier and Schuyler Ufkes, all second-year students at Chicago-Kent College of Law at Illinois Tech, will represent the law school at the inaugural Frank A. Schreck Gaming Law Moot Court Competition, April 1 to 3, 2016, at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law.
Hosted by the William S. Boyd School of Law's Moot Court Team, Society of Advocates, and the UNLV Gaming Law Journal, the competition will focus on emerging issues at the intersection of gaming law and regulation. Frank A. Schreck, namesake of the competition, is chair of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP's Gaming Law Group and a former president of the International Association of Gaming Attorneys.
Chicago-Kent's Ilana Diamond Rovner Program in Appellate Advocacy, the umbrella program for many of the law school's moot court activities, was established in 1992. Since then, Chicago-Kent students have won numerous individual honors and regional and national competitions, including consecutive titles in the New York City Bar Association's National Moot Court Competition.
