The "Elite Eight" Round of the OT 2019 Harlan Institute-ConSource Virtual Supreme Court Competition

Congratulations to the top 8 teams


On the first Monday in October, the Harlan Institute and The Constitutional Sources Project (ConSource) announce the Seventh Annual Virtual Supreme Court Competition. This year, 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. Here are their entries, with links to their briefs.

Earlier in April, we hosted the semifinal rounds. The top eight teams advanced to our "Elite Eight" round. Here are the new videos.
