SCOTUSblog & Bloomberg Law sponsor Supreme Court competition

US Supreme Court Prediction Competition sponsored by SCOTUSblog and Bloomberg Law®!

Using resources provided by Bloomberg Law and SCOTUSblog – including opinions, Supreme Court briefs, Justice profiles, and statutes – your team will have the opportunity to perform research and make its predictions for five cases argued on the merits in April 2012, as well as five cert. petitions that the Court will consider that month.

Once registered, please log in to create your team and invite up to four other students at your school to join. This is also where you will learn which merits cases and cert. petitions you will be researching, read the rules for the competition, view the training schedule, and submit your picks once your research is complete.

Dates to remember:

  • Registration Deadline: March 2
  • Training Deadline: March 9
  • Prediction Submission Deadline: April 10

HLS Bloomberg Law rep, Eric Malinowski, will be in the Hark-Caspersen on February 29 and March 1.

B-Law is meant to compete with Lexis & Westlaw and has primary US laws, proprietary research reports, SEC filings, and an amazing set of model forms and contracts, among other resources!

To know if you are eligible for an account, read the B-Law policy.
