Ben Sheinbein places first in Moot Court competition


Ben Sheinbein and his two co-counselors placed first in the 2023 McGee Civil Rights Moot Court Competition. This year’s fictional case involved a Department of Human Services official performing a welfare check on a child.

The parent wanted to livestream the visit and said an order barring her from doing so was a violation of her First Amendment rights.

Sheinbein, a second-year law student at Chicago-Kent College of Law, also took home the best oralist prize in preliminary round two.
