Bloomberg Law and SCOTUSblog’s Supreme Court Challenge
Welcome to the Third Annual Supreme Court Challenge, hosted by Bloomberg Law and SCOTUSblog!

- Compete for pride and money against the experts at SCOTUSblog and other law students around the country.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the three student teams with the most points.

After a close race last year in what proved to be a very important term, Protect Sam Chase from St. Johns University School of Law came in first place, outscoring all other student teams and the expert team from SCOTUSblog with a score of 64.00 points to win the full $5,000 prize! Close behind with a tie of 63.50 points each was Bro Bono from Indiana University – Bloomington, Maurer School of Law and Goldman St Johns School of Law from St. Johns University School of Law. After calculating the results of the tie breaker, Bro Bono came in second place and Goldman St Johns School of Law came in third. That’s right; three teams of law students came away with hard cash and bragging rights.
