Congratulations to our Moot Court Honor Board teams who competed this past weekend! We had two teams advance to the semi-final rounds.
 
The Coastal Moot Court Honor Board competed this weekend at the regional level of the Thomas Tang International Moot Court Competition in Atlanta, Ga with notable results. 
 
The team of Charlie Chin and Georgia Lawrence advanced to the semi-final round, before falling to Southern Methodist University Law School, which went on to win the competition.  Based on their outstanding performance, Charlie and Georgia will be extended an invitation to the national level of the TANG competition, to be held in San Diego, Calif. in early November.
 
The teams of La’Carrian Smith and Hana Eldick, as well as Brittany Honeycutt and Graciela Castillo, also performed very well but did not advance to the elimination rounds.  However, Brittany and Graciela’s written brief did score third place for the entire competition.
 
Two other Moot Court Honor Board teams competed at the National Latina/o Law Student Association Moot Court Competition in Boston, Mass, and both teams advanced to the semi-final rounds—Minerva Poblet and Ashley Venegas, as well as Sarah Baniszewski and Donald Burns. 
 
Sarah and Donald advanced to the semi-final round before falling to William and Mary Law School, which went on to win the competition.  Minerva and Ashley advanced to the semi-final round before being eliminated by Northwestern Law School.  The rounds were all very close, and we are very proud of each and every one of the competitors.
 
Donald was named “Best Oralist,” and the team of Sarah and Donald was awarded the “Best Respondent’s Brief,” as well as coming in third place overall at the competition.
