Two of the UW Law School's Moot Court teams brought home awards during the Fall 2010 term.
Trevor Leverson x'11 and Zach Ramirez x'11 won 3rd Place out of 26 teams at the Wechsler First Amendment Moot Court Competition, hosted by the American University College of Law in Washington, D.C. The problem concerned restrictions that a public high school placed on certain speakers at a school's Sexual Awareness Day. Davin Widgerow x'11 was their coach.
In addition to their team honors, Ramirez was Runner-Up Best Oralist.
Adam Weil x'12 and Amanda Grady x'12 won the Best Brief award at the Appellate Lawyers Association Moot Court Competition in Chicago, beating teams from the University of Illinois College of Law, the Chicago-Kent Law School, and the University of Houston Law Center. Their brief is available here. Weil and Grady were coached by Sarah Anderson x'11.
