Bloomberg Law and SCOTUSblog launched a challenge to law students last week to predict the outcomes of six merits cases and six petitions for certiorari being considered by the court in March.
Prizes will be awarded for the top three teams of up to five students from the same U.S. ABA-accredited law school. Teams that defeat the SCOTUSblog team will also receive bonuses, according to SCOTUSblog. Each law student entrant who doesn't already have one must register for a free law school account through Bloomberg Law to participate.
Teams must register by Thursday, Feb. 28 and submit their picks by March 14.
