Seattle, WA
Members: Tina Nguyen, Navneet Mattu
Coaches: Student Coach: Swetha Gopalakrishnan; Alumni Coach: Vincent Lee

Plaintiff Isa Camacho (“Camacho”), a student at the University of Apalsa’s School of Law, was subject to discipline by the University for conduct that “disrupts the expressive rights of others” and subsequently expelled for violating the professionalism requirements of the law school’s honor code.

I. 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.


II. 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.
