On Saturday, October 19, 2019, the Moot Court Honors Board hosted the annual David M. Gill trial competition that is open to all 2Ls and 3Ls. Students were given a fact pattern a week in advance and prepared either an opening or closing statement to deliver to a panel of judges.
The first photo includes the seven finalist who not only moved into the final round but also received Distinguished Advocate awards! From left to right: Danica Hernandez, Jessica Taylor, Brian Jeong, Ryan Stygar, Nicolas Ahadzadeh, Gentre Martinez, and Loriann Ayon.
The second photo, is of our top three winners! From left to right: 2nd place, Danica Hernandez; 1st place, Ryan Stygar; and 3rd place, Loriann Ayon.
On behalf of Moot Court Honors Board, we would like to congratulate all competitors. You should feel proud of yourselves for demonstrating great courage and taking a big step in developing your legal advocacy skills.
The Moot Court Honors Board looks forward to hosting the upcoming annual George N. Gafford competition open for all 1L students in the spring.
