Washington: LDS Top Law Competitions

Latter-day Saint students at The George Washington University Law School have recently placed at the top of three national and international advocacy competitions reaching from the Washington, D.C., campus to India.

Anne Sidwell and her partner won the K.K. Luthra Memorial Court Competition at the University of Delhi in February. In the Religious Freedom Moot Court Competition held on the GW Law campus, Carolyn Homer and her partner finished second. In a third event, LDS students Brian Prince and Nicholas Kunz won the Giles Rich Intellectual Property Moot Court Competition for GW and will go on to regionals in California.

Moot courts and mock trials, although artificial, take law students beyond traditional classroom learning, explained Dean David M. Johnson, Director of Advocacy Programs, in a GW Law blog. "They offer the opportunity to write briefs and engage in oral advocacy, two skills that are very real in the practice of law."
