The History of the Cardozo BMI Moot Court Competition

In 1984, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law first hosted an Entertainment and Communications Law Moot Court Competition. The fourth competition, in 1987, marked the beginning of BMI's (Broadcast Music, Inc., the performing right organization) involvement and co-sponsorship of the competition. Since these early beginnings, the competition has grown in both involvement and stature, attracting some of the brightest legal minds from law schools across the country. In addition, the competition has drawn top judges and lawyers to offer their insight to the competitors.

The 33rd Cardozo BMI Moot Court Competition will take place from:

March 5th through March 8th, 2017
Opening Rounds will commence on the morning of March 5th 
Finals will be held on Wednesday, March 8th
