Wake Forest School of Law’s National Moot Court Team traveled to New York City to compete in the National Moot Court Finals on February 9, 2016. The team included Lauren Emery (’16), Woody Angle (’16), and Kaitlin Price (’16). The team previously won the Region IV Tournament in November securing their spot at Finals.
The National Moot Court Competition is an annual inter-law school event co-sponsored by New York City Bar Association’s National Moot CourtCompetition Committee and the American College of Trial Lawyers. Since 1950, the competition has promoted the appellate advocacy arts of intellectual rigor, legal research, and persuasive argument. This historic competition allows student advocates to hone their appellate advocacy skills before prominent members of the legal profession. Every year, over 120 law schools compete in regional rounds throughout the United States, with winners advancing to final rounds in New York City.
The top two teams from all fifteen regions nationwide traveled to New York City to compete. The competition was fierce and unfortunately Wake Forest’s team did not advance. However, the Moot Court board and the law school community is honored to have sent a National Moot Court team of three outstanding advocates to the National Moot Court Finals this year.
The team members want to thank their peers, professors, and coaches for their constant support and direction while preparing for Finals. Wake Forest Moot Court Board is proud of all the hard work Lauren Emery, Woody Angle, and Kaitlin Price put in to make their team a success!
