The teams are trained by the Fordham Law School Dispute Resolution Board and Volunteer Attorney Mentors to practice legal advocacy and collaborative problem-solving skills, while receiving constructive evaluation and feedback from experienced practitioners and judges.

The preliminary rounds of the competition are hosted by Fordham Law School, and the final round hosted by the New York City Bar. The full competition schedule and registration forms are below.
