A team of five Wake Forest law students, Alicha Grubb ’16, Anastasia Fanning ’16, Alan Bowie ’16, Charley Connor ’17, and Cheslie Kryst ’16 competed in the Jessup International Law Competition. The competition was in Washington D.C. at George Washington University February 12-14th.
The team of advocates competed against eighteen other schools with nearly a hundred individual competitors. The problem considered relevant international law issues including cyber security, espionage, terrorism, and illegal detainment. The team worked hard all semester to research the complicated issues and craft cogent arguments.
The team put up a good fight but ended up 1-3. They notably defeated Johns Hopkins University, renowned for its International Law program. The team was narrowly defeated by Howard University and lost to finalists George Washington and George Mason University.
