A moot court competition, a Q & A with retired US Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, and the Miami sun? It all happened at the ABA Forum on Communication Law’s 19th annual conference in February.
The conference kicked off with the moot court competition and students gave spirited oral arguments. Yvette Butler and Sara Bell of George Washington University School of Law were the overall winners and they won the “Best Brief” award.
“Taking part in the moot court competition was an experience that I will never forget,” said Bell. “The chance to perform oral arguments in front of a distinguished panel of judges and the country’s prominent legal minds in this field, as well as to receive individualized feedback and critique, was invaluable as a law student. This competition challenged me to be a better writer and oral advocate, and I am very thankful for the experience.”
