Congratulations to second-year students J. Caleb Grant, Alexander F. "Alex" Krupp, Emily M. "Millie" Price, Courtney H. Robinson and James A. Stewart for finishing the prestigious Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition as octofinalists. Robinson tied for the best overall oralist through the Advanced Rounds and Stewart was named the fifth best. In February, the team was crowned the U.S. national finalist. The Jessup competition is the world's largest moot court tournament boasting participants from roughly 700 law schools in 100 countries and jurisdictions. Third-year student Courtney M. Hogan served as coach.
"Ending the competition essentially tied for ninth in such a field is an incredible feat," according to faculty adviser/coach Anna White Howard. "This was a grueling competition, lasting over five weeks across three months and involving 19 competition rounds." Howard expressed appreciation for the many faculty and alumni/alumnae who helped to get the team "competition ready."
