OU Law students fared well at moot court competitions across the country this past weekend. Juvenile Law Moot Court Team members Leslie Gile and Maggie Tully won second place in the national tournament at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, California. Maggie won the Best Advocate Award and Leslie placed seventh in speaker awards.
Jeff Swigart, Abi Ryan and Foster Dobry also won second place at the regional Saul Lefkowitz Trademark Moot Court Competition in Dallas, Texas. With that placement, the team qualifies for the national finals in Washington D.C. next month. Team members also won Best Oral Argument Team.
Special thanks to OU Law professors Mary Sue Backus, Sarah Burstein and Maria Kolar for helping the teams prepare.
