Benjamin N.

Mr. Wildes, who teaches Business Immigration Law at Cardozo, was once again honored to judge the annual Langfan Family Constitutional Oratorical Competition, which was held at Yeshiva University on Sunday, April 28, 2013. The Langfan Competition, which was established in 2001, recognizes student excellence in public speaking and rhetoric. Langfan is not a traditional moot court competition where judges interrupt competitors during their argument. Instead, it is an oratorical competition in which competitors present a short uninterrupted speech analyzing a controversial constitutional issue. 
This years topic for debate was “Kill Lists: How Extensive are the President’s War Powers.” The competition was an all0day event where at the end the University awards $750 to the 1st Place winner, $500 to the 2nd Place winner and $250 to the 3rd Place winner. 
As a former federal prosecutor with the Eastern District of New York, Mr. Wildes provided thoughtful critique for students who participated.  He offered feedback on the students presentation style and their ability to deliver persuasive arguments  surrounding the topic.  The students stated that they truly appreciated the valuable input and insightful comments of Mr. Wildes, a seasoned practitioner.
