Third-year evening student Matt Olson received the second-best oralist award on November 10 at the Chicago Bar Association's 26th Annual Moot Court Competition.

Olson and his teammates, third-year day students Ivan Marrs and Leslie Ramos, advanced to the quarter-finals before being eliminated. The weekend competition, which was held at the Everett Dirksen Center in downtown Chicago, featured 36 teams with more than 100 competitors representing 20 law schools. Florida Coastal School of Law defeated Pepperdine University School of Law in the finals. Professor Ed Telfeyan coached the McGeorge team. It was the law school's second year at this competition.
