Georgia Law students recently captured all of the top positions at the Intrastate Moot Court Competition, which pits two teams from each of the state’s five law schools against each other. This is the eighth consecutive year Georgia Law has won this tournament and the 10th its students have authored the best brief. Additionally, Georgia Law won the Best Brief Award at the American Bar Association Law Student Division National Appellate Advocacy Competition and finished the contest among the top 16 teams nationally.
