Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Competition (Securities Law)

The Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Moot Court Competition is held in honor of Judge Kaufman, a Fordham alumnus who served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit for many years, including seven years as Chief Judge.

The Competition offers teams the opportunity to test appellate advocacy skills before leading jurists, securities regulators, academics, and practitioners. In years past, the Kaufman Competition has attracted such distinguished final round panelists as Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Byron White, notable Circuit Judges, leading Securities and Exchange Commission officials, and influential securities law academics and practitioners.
