By donating $12 before the end of 2012, you can help send the winners of our inaugural Virtual Supreme Court competition to Washington, D.C. to celebrate Constitution Day 2013.
Over the last four years, through our innovative approach to online legal education with FantasySCOTUS, the Harlan Institute has taught thousands of high school students about our Constitution and the Supreme Court.
This year, students can compete in three great contests–Fantasy Predictions, Fantasy Blog Posts and Badges, and our all new Virtual Supreme Court.
The Virtual Supreme Court, a collaboration with ConSource, asks students to consider whether the Fourteenth Amendment is color-blind in the context of Fisher v. University of Texas.
Teams of two students choose one side of the issue, write appellate briefs, and engage in oral arguments against other students using Google+ Hangouts. During the moot court sessions, Harlan and ConSource judges ask the students questions, and challenge them on their briefs.
This virtual competition allows students across the country to engage in cutting-edge constitutional issues
The grand prize for the top two students is a trip to Washington, D.C. to celebrate ConSource’s Constitution Day 2013. Members of the runner-up team will each receive an iPad.
I ask your help to support the prizes for these amazing students.
100% of your tax-deductible donation will be used to cover the costs of bringing the students to our nation’s capital. The Harlan Institute has no salaried employees, and all of our overhead costs are covered by sponsorships.
I thank you for your support.
President, The Harlan Institute
