Law school can get super busy and hectic at times. But sometimes, as counterintuitive as it may seem, adding activities outside of law school may be very beneficial. I’ve tried yoga, club volleyball, and odd jobs, like babysitting; all of which were hard while being in school, and I realized that maybe law school clubs where the best of both worlds. It was not exactly school but it was not completely detached either. Since my 1L year, I have been very involved with the Latino Law Caucus, and my involvement has progressed from a club member to a board member for the past two years. The Latino Law Caucus has given me great opportunities to impact and support my community in law school and outside of it. We have been a part of community service projects that have helped underrepresented people get answers to legal questions they would, otherwise, not find. It has helped me get pro bono hours and experience with community outreach. I am grateful for everything I have gained and given to the Latino Law Caucus. One of my greatest accomplishments, which is my moot court participation, was thanks to the Latino Law Caucus. The Latino Law Caucus of University of the Idaho College of Law is part of a web of Latino oriented law school clubs around the nation. Most of those clubs go by the name Latino Law Student Associations. Through this connection, our Latino Law Caucus is able to participate in a national moot court held by the national board. For all these schools, as in ours, participation in the National Latino Law Student Association (NLLSA) Moot Court and conference is not contingent on being Latino/Latina but as part of a selection process to participate on the team at each respective school. I have been fortunate enough to participate in our schools team for the past two years, and I have seen people of all backgrounds participate and excel in this competition. Last year the competition was hosted by the University of Texas in Austin, Texas and this year it was hosted by three law schools: Northwestern University School of Law, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, and Northern Illinois University College of Law all in Chicago, Illinois. This last competition was one of my greatest law school experiences and my first time in Chicago. The end result of this competition was very exciting and fun, but we didn’t get there without putting in some hard work. The College of Law has sent a team of three law students to participate each year. In July or August, NLLSA releases the prompt for our brief and the team has about a month to complete it. Once the brief is submitted, the team has about another month to prepare for oral arguments. Topics are generally related to constitutional law and immigration. This year, our prompt was related to the controversial Deferred Action for Parents of Childhood Arrivals (DAPA) executive action and issues of standing and administrative law, which made for a very tough problem. Each team is designated a side, either petitioners—in this case the United States Government—or respondents, like the States opposing the action. Our team was selected to argue for the States, and we wrote our brief to the Supreme Court of the United States. Come oral argument time, our team was expected to be able to argue our side and the opposing side. Each year, my participation in NLLSA has been a challenging activity. However, each year the benefits of completing this task outweigh the stress in preparing for it. I recommend moot court participation to anyone looking for more writing and oral argument experience, especially for the 2Ls and 1Ls consider NLLSA!
