ASU moot court team competes at regional meeting of the American Collegiate Moot Court Association

Congratulations to the ASU moot court team. Six ASU students participated in the American Collegiate Moot Court Association's regional moot court competition held in Lynchburg, Virginia, November 7-9. Our students competed against teams from a number of universities, including the James Madison University, the University of Virginia, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Patrick Henry, Washington and Lee, and Western Carolina. Two teams--Jessica Berkowitz and Andrew Eastwick, and Cory Hutchens and Alexandria Ransom--advanced to the finals, with Hutchens and Ransom making it through to the quarterfinals.

Moot court involves students presenting mock appellate arguments before a panel of judges. The competition is based on a hypothetical case problem and incorporates actual U.S. Supreme Court cases. The students study these cases, develop their own legal arguments, and then present and defend their arguments before the judges.
