St. Mary’s Law students triumph at national moot court contest

Originally published by Jillian Beck.

A trio of aspiring litigators from St. Mary’s University School of Law reigned supreme at the American Bar Association’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition in Chicago last week.

“This championship speaks volumes about the quality of our law students as advocates,” David A. Schlueter, Hardy Professor of Law and Director of Advocacy Programs at St. Mary’s, said in a press release.

Teams participating in the competition—which many consider the most prestigious moot court contest in the U.S.—were required to simulate an appeal to the United States Supreme Court, submitting a brief and arguing a hypothetical case in front of a mock court of eight judges in the Everett M. Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in Chicago from April 7-9.
