The Moot Court Executive Board wants to congratulate the four competitors who have advanced to the final round. To reach the finals, our competitors had to make it past hours of demanding arguments, a cadre of high-level competitors, and a series of exacting judges. After all that, we are sure the finals will include some of the best law student oral advocates in the country.

Congratulations to:

Emily Hush, Jan Jorritsma, Brett Mead, and Lauren Beck!
