Stanford Law School’s Moot Court finals are the culmination of the Kirkwood Competition, which begins each fall with 20 two-student teams and, after several elimination rounds, brings together the two teams with the highest combined brief and oral argument scores. The Kirkwood problem presents significant constitutional or federal statutory issues, and the arguments take place before a hypothetical U.S Supreme Court. This year’s case, Matthew Nguyen v. State of North Dakota, raised the question of whether police violate the Fourth Amendment when they enter a locked apartment building without permission and conduct a dog sniff for illegal drugs. In this video, the judges sitting at the Moot Court finals held Feb. 5, 2016, as the U.S. Supreme Court, are Chief Judge Diane Wood of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and Judge Michelle Friedland, JD ’00 (BS ’95), of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Representing Petitioner Nguyen are Alison Gocke, JD/MS ’17, and Sean Janda, JD ’17. Representing Respondent North Dakota are Andrew Chang, JD ’17, and Grace Zhou, JD ’17

Counsel for Petitioner: Alison Gocke and Sean Janda
Counsel for Respondent: Andrew Chang and Grace Zhou
