Third-year student Jacob S. “Jake” Edwards recently presented oral argument before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit as part of the law school’s Appellate Litigation Clinic.  The question in the case was whether Mr. William Gray, Jr.’s habeas petition was second or successive given that it challenged a “new judgment.”  Third-year students Mary Grace Griffin and David R. Waldrep assisted in writing briefs and in helping Edwards prepare by acting as opposing counsel during practice arguments. All three students attended the argument in Richmond, Virginia.
