From Professor Sanford N. Greenberg

On Tuesday, November 17, the Moot Court Honor Society will present demonstrations of oral arguments that Society members have prepared for recent interscholastic moot court competitions. All interested students are invited to attend a demonstration in the Courtroom at either noon to 12:45 p.m. or 1 to 1:45 p.m.

You are invited to attend the final round oral arguments in this year's Ilana Diamond Rovner Appellate Advocacy Competition, the intramural competition for members of the Moot Court Honor Society. The arguments will take place in the Auditorium at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 18, and we ask that everyone be seated by 3:45. This year's problem involves a Fourth Amendment challenge to the warrantless use of a "thermal imaging device" to detect heat associated with lights used to grow marijuana indoors. The second issue, which is currently before the Supreme Court, addresses whether a defendant who has pleaded guilty but not been sentenced can still rely on the Fifth Amendment to decline answering questions.

The panel for the final round consists of Judges Joel Flaum and Diane Wood of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and Justice Anne Burke of the Illinois Appellate Court.
