UW Law Students Advance to NY National Moot Court Competition

UW School of Law students Lisa Benedetti, Andrew Gardner, and Justin Andrews won the regional National Moot Court Competition, defeating Seattle University in the final rounds of the competition, which was held at Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland last weekend. They will represent UW at the National Finals, to be held in New York City in 2010. UW third-year law student Keaton Hubbert won Best Oralist at the regional competition.

In 2007, UW School of Law students Dustin Buehler '07, Candice Tewell '08, and Aaron Thomson '07 won the National Moot Court Competition.

The National Moot Court Competition is sponsored by the New York City Bar. Since 1950, it has provided law students across the United States with the opportunity to strengthen their appellate advocacy skills.
