On the first Monday in October, the Harlan Institute and The Constitutional Sources Project (ConSource) announced the Seventh Annual Virtual Supreme Court Competition. This Term, the tournament focused on Espinoza v. Montana v. Department of Revenue. Twenty-one high school teams advanced to the semifinal rounds. They prepared briefs, and presented live oral arguments via Zoom. These students are very impressive–especially under the circumstances. They prepared joint arguments remotely, with all schools shut down. I am so proud of them. We will hold the quarter-final rounds, also by Zoom, later this month. And the championship round will be held in May.

Here are their entries, with links to their briefs:
