The University of Georgia School of Law defeated the University of Florida School of Law in the 2020 Florida/Georgia-Hulsey/Gambrell Moot Court Competition.

Formerly known as the Hulsey-Kimbrell Moot Court Competition, this annual courtroom contest - held virtually this year - is traditionally held at the end of October. Two law students from each school compete as lawyers in a mock appellate case, and the victors in the case earn bragging rights and the championship trophy to keep at their law school for the year.

Representing the School of Law in the moot court competition were third-year law students Jason Sigalos and Anre Washington. This year's win adds to UGA's outstanding performances, bringing its tournament record to 25-11-2.

"Our team did a great job this year under unusual circumstances and I am so proud of their hard work," School of Law Director of Advocacy Kellie Casey said. "Winning this contest with Florida is a great start to the advocacy season. Many thanks to Professor Anna Howard for helping get our team ready to battle!"

This year's judges were U.S. District Court Judges Stan Baker and Lisa Godbey Wood from Georgia, U.S. District Court Judges Brian Jordan Davis and Marcia Morales Howard from Florida and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Charles R. Wilson.

This competition started when Mark Hulsey, a partner with the Jacksonville law firm Smith Hulsey & Busey and a UF graduate, and Charlie Kimbrell, a lawyer practicing in Miami who was a UGA graduate, agreed to co-sponsor the event. Both original founders have since passed away, but their legacy lives on. Today, Smith Hulsey & Busey and the law firm Smith, Gambrell & Russell - which has offices in Atlanta and Jacksonville among other locations - support this competition.
