Best Brief, 2008 Intrastate Moot Court Competition

By Matthew A. Josephson, Titus T. Nichols and Robert D. Thomas

Abstract

The University of Georgia School of Law swept the 2008 Intrastate Moot Court Competition with two teams from UGA advancing to the final round of the tournament and capturing both the Best Brief and Best Oralist awards. UGA defeated teams from each of the state\u27s law schools - Emory University, Georgia State University, Mercer University and John Marshall - in the annual contest. The team of second-year law students Matthew A. Josephson, Titus T. Nichols and Robert D. Thomas won the championship trophy and received the Best Brief Award, while second-year students Kawania N. Brown, Audrey M. Seidle and David J. Younker finished the competition as finalists. Additionally, Younker earned the tournament\u27s best oralist honor. Both UGA teams were coached by third-year students Catherine D. Runion and Rachel D. Horton. \u22I couldn\u27t be more proud of our students,\u22 Georgia Law Director of Advocacy Kellie Casey Monk said. \u22After the final round of the tournament, both teams from the School of Law were tied for first, and the judges had to use the brief scores to determine the top team. It was amazing to have an all-Georgia final and to capture all of the competition\u27s awards.\u22 The last time Georgia Law swept this intrastate contest was in 2006
