Moot Court teams make gains despite virtual contests

Emory Law Moot Court teams competed recently in virtual competitions this month including the Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition and the The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. For the Duberstein Bankruptcy team, competitors Kaitlyn Gilbert 22L, Remya Menon 22L, and Robert Brown 22L brought home the Best Brief Award and placed third nationally. The Duberstein team was coached by Cayton Chrisman 21L, Bara Ahmad 21L, Katherine Dolansky 21L, and Bennett Gillogly 21L. The Moot Court Society would like to particularly thank Judge Sigler, Judge Baisier, and Judge Grimberg for practice-benching the Duberstein team leading up to the competition.

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition regionals were held last weekend as well. Emory Law’s team consists of Charli Davis 22L, Abbey Hayford 22L, and Jordan Johnson 22L, and Maddie Young 21L. The Jessup team was coached by Noemie Broussoux-Coutard 21L, Maggie Clark 21L, and Kaela Palmiter 21L. The Jessup team previously won Region 3 and just completed the Jessup National round, finishing third overall. They will begin preliminary rounds of the international Jessup competition in mid-March. Young and Davis won Top 20 Oralist Awards at the national round--Young was ranked #3 and Davis #14. The team won a Top 10 Brief Award as well, with their brief ranking #5.
