For the past three and a half weeks, all first-year students at OU Law participated in the 1L Moot Court Competition. Each round took place in various court rooms, conference rooms and classrooms throughout Coats Hall. The annual competition is organized by the OU Law Board of Advocates and sponsored by Whitten Burrage.
Congratulations to this year’s winners, Alexandria Smith and Jordan Stroh! And job well done to the other final team of Morgan Vastag and Sam Endicott.
OU Law extends a special thanks to the final round judges:
Judge Wayne Alley, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma (retired); Jurist in Residence, OU College of Law
Judge Robert Bacharach, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit
Judge Stephen Friot, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma
Chief Judge Brian Goree, Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals
Dean Joseph Harroz Jr., OU College of Law
Presiding Judge David Lewis, Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals
Judge Scott Rowland, Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals
Vice Chief Judge Jane Wiseman, Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals
Judge Patrick Wyrick, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma
The students argued a case involving Jones, a citizen of a state that has passed a strict concealed-carry permit law. Jones claims the law violates his Second Amendment rights. Also, Jones is attempting to sue the city for releasing his personal information without his consent. The city claims Jones has not suffered any damages from the release of information, and is therefore not eligible to bring suit.
