Mooters Victorious

March 31, 2006

A team from Duke Law School emerged victorious from the National Moot Court Competition, held in New York in February--the first time Duke law students have won the competition.

More than 250 teams participated in the event, which is sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers and the New York City bar association. Among other honors, the Duke team, which comprised third-year law students Audry Casusol, Sara Wickware, and April Nelson, was recognized for having the best brief in the competition, and Nelson was named second-best oralist. The same group won first place in the regional finals last fall.
