FantasySCOTUS 2017 Begins!

The October 2017 Term of FantasySCOTUS is about to begin! The contest begins today, Monday, October 2, 2017, and ends July 1, 2018. Create an account and start submitting predictions now.

Participants may play in any number of leagues, with the exception of the Law School League, which is limited to participation only by law students. Cash prizes are only available to those playing in the Elect League.

  • The Elect League – This league is open to all participants.
  • Law School League – This league is only open to law students, defined as a student actively enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school.
  • Participant-Created Leagues – Participants may create and join private leagues.

Participants will be ranked within their leagues, as well as across all FantasySCOTUS participants. There are no cash prizes awarded for play within these leagues. The creators of these leagues will determine who may participate in their leagues.

The year, the $5,000 Elect League Grand Prize is sponsored by Fastcase!  This prize will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points. The 1st Prize of $2,500 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the Grand Prize winner. The 2nd Prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the 1st Prize winner. The 3rd Prize of $750 will be awarded to the participant with the highest number of points after the 2nd Prize winner. In the event of a tie for one of the Prizes, each of the participants with the tied score will receive an equally divided share of the total of all the prizes to which the tied participants would be entitled (e.g. If 2 participants tie for 2nd Prize, they will each receive half of the combined total of the 2nd and 3rd Prizes, or $1,750 divided by 2 = $875).
