Due to weather conditions, all classes at Cardozo Law at 4 p.m. and later on March 5, 2015 are canceled.

The library is open until 9 p.m. The BMI Moot Court Competition is still taking place.

The Langfan Family Constitutional Oratorical Competition has recognized student excellence in public speaking and rhetoric since its establishment in 2001. Langfan is not a traditional moot court competition where judges interrupt competitors during their argument. Instead, it is an oratorical competition in which competitors deliver a short uninterrupted speech analyzing a controversial constitutional issue.

The 2014 Langfan topic was:

"Should states allow a mother who conceives a child, without the father's consent or knowledge, to recover child support?"

Last year, the school awarded $750 to the 1st Place winner, $500 to the 2nd Place winner and $250 to the 3rd Place winner.
