Georgia Law wins national moot court competition

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia School of Law recently took home top honors at the Third Annual Legal Ethics and Professionalism Moot Court Competition, capturing both first and second place against a field of more than 20 teams. Hosted by Mercer University, this is the second year in a row Georgia Law has won this national competition.

Third-year students Chandler L. Smith and Timothy F.J. “Tim” Dean comprised the winning team, while third-year classmates Nneka A. Egwuatu and Scott F. McAfee finished in the runner-up position. Additionally, McAfee was named the tournament’s best oralist.

“I am so proud of our students for their outstanding performance,” Georgia Law Advocacy Director Kellie Casey said. “To have both of our teams make it to the final round of the competition really speaks to the caliber of our students. It was a great win.”
