School of Law advocacy 3-peat

The UGA School of Law’s advocacy program finished the 2007-08 academic year with three national titles and four regional/state trophies in addition to numerous individual and team honors.

“In the past 12 years, we have had three seasons where we won three or more national titles. There are not many law schools which can say that,” said Advocacy Director Kellie Casey Monk (AB ’87, JD ’90).

This year’s national championships were won at the Emory National Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition, the Vanderbilt National First Amendment Competition and the William W. Daniel National Invitational Mock Trial Competition.

Additional national finishes for the School of Law included placing third at the Frederick Douglass National Moot Court Competition and finishing as one of the top eight teams at the National Moot Court Competition and the Dean Jerome Prince Memorial Evidence Moot Court Competition.

On the state level, the School of Law swept the 2008 Intrastate Moot Court Competition with two teams from UGA advancing to the final round of the tournament and capturing both the Best Brief and Best Oralist awards. UGA defeated teams from each of the state’s law schools in the annual contest.
