Tang 2L Resp. (Shireen & Yena)
Seattle, WA
Members: Yena Kim and Shireen Leung
Coaches: Irene Lee (student coach), Ronnie Shou (alumni coach)
Description of Issues:

This year's problem for the Thomas Tang National Moot Court Competition involves the First Amendment, freedom of speech, state universities, students, and state bar professionalism standards.

The issues are:

1. Whether a state university may impose disciplinary sanctions on a student for non-curricular expressive conduct otherwise protected by the First Amendment in order to protect the expressive rights of others.

2. Whether a state university may expel a law student based on university officials' determination that her off-campus expressive activity, otherwise protected by the First Amendment, violates the professionalism standards governing attorneys.
