The American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition focuses on topics of general legal interest attracting students from across the nation. Among recent topics: whether felon disenfranchisement laws violate the Fourteenth Amendment; whether the search incident to arrest doctrine should be modified to ask whether evidence may be found in the vehicle and whether a judge violated the sentencing reform act when requiring a student to pass out flyers regarding his crime on campus. Winners of regional rounds advance to national rounds.
