Legal Challenge: Weekly Contest for Miami Law Students


As of Monday, Feb. 13, students at the University of Miami School of Law will be invited to take part in a weekly legal challenge on the school's Facebook page.

For instance, they might be asked how they would deal with a particular legal issue, how they might rule on a case if they were on the bench, or how, as prosecutors, they would go after a bad guy.

The challenge will be posted on Mondays at 9 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. on Fridays. Law professors in the field of query will judge the responses. In the case of similar correct answers, first poster will be deemed the victor.

The first prize is a coveted parking space adjoining the School of Law, on the Wednesday of the following week. Second and third prizes are the joy of a hand well played.

Be sure to LIKE Miami Law's Facebook page prior to the kickoff – and may the best barrister win.
