McGeorge’s nationally ranked Advocacy program develops a pipeline of competitors who represent the law school in intercollegiate tournaments throughout the year.
One of the feeder programs that provides opportunities for students to hone their oral advocacy skills is the First-Year Moot Court Competition. Cassie Shaft captured first prize in this spring’s event. Brad Coutinho was the first runner-up, Danielle Wheeler took third-place honors, and Susie Booth was also in the final four.
Jeremy Ehrlich was recognized for the Best Overall Brief. Yoon-Wo Nam and Shaft finished in the top three in the appellant brief category. Brian Hamilton took first place in the appellee brief division while Booth and Coutinho tied for second.
Jel Samar Talley, ’10, the chair of the First-Year Moot Court Competition, and Professor Ed Telfeyan, the head coach of the McGeorge moot court intercollegiate team, organized the event.
