Great News!! The National Moot Court Team advanced to the FINAL FOUR out of 189 teams participating. Unfortunately, they did not advance against Chicago Kent to the final round. Thank you to all of you for your help in mooting them and giving them the confidence to reach their potential! We should be very proud of Chris Otten, Rick Brown, Katie May, and Leigh Anne Gilchrist. As you can see, while we did not advance further, we did a MAGNIFICENT job.
