Sarah Spencer will moderate a mock appellate argument involving a sports-gambling case at this month's DRI Appellate Advocacy Seminar. A panel of judges will preside over a mock oral argument, performed by exceptional practitioners, in a case on review before the Supreme Court of the United States that challenges the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a federal law banning states from authorizing sports gambling in all but a handful of "grandfathered" states, such as Nevada.
The seminar will be held March 14-15, 2018 at the Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Registration details can be found here.
