Moot Court Team Competes in National Competition
On Saturday, March 6, Moot Court Teams (James Kirkland ‘21/Larkin Owens ‘21, Boone Pool ‘22/Henry Wilcox ‘22, Rowland Ken-Williams ‘22/Ryan Fowler ‘22, and Zoe Wen ‘22/Josh Hoffman ‘22) went up against 48 other highly competitive teams from across the country over Zoom to argue the constitutionality of a hypothetical appellate court case "Kate Sommers and Robert Brown v. The State of Olympus" over the issues of the first amendment and fourteenth amendment.
After three rounds of competition, Josh Hoffman and Zoe Wen made it to the elimination rounds on Sunday, March 7, reserved for the top 31 teams. Zoe and Josh made it to the top 15, after being eliminated in a close match. All the teams were prepared, poised, and ready to argue because of the dedication of former GDS teachers, Ben Zuraw and Terry Buxton, and Moot Court Advisor, Mary Goins.
