Law students within the Fifth Circuit have a winning tradition at the Duberstein Bankruptcy National Moot Court Competition held annually in New York. The Elliott Cup regional competition has prepared law students from Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi law schools for the national competition since 2005. Elliott Cup is sponsored by the Texas Bankruptcy Section, honoring the late Joseph C. Elliott, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the Western District of Texas.
The recurring success (sometimes domination) at the national competition is dependent on lawyers and judges that volunteer at Elliott Cup, which is usually held in mid-February. Participating lawyers are also invited to attend the Team Dinner at the end of the competition.
The 2019 Elliott Cup is set for February 15-16 in Downtown Dallas! If you would like to learn more about the Elliott Cup competition or would be interested in volunteering as a judge at the competition, please contact Jessica Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
