School of Law wins annual Florida/Georgia moot court competition

Friday, October 26, 2018

Congratulations to third-year students Jennifer Cotton and Miles Skedsvold, who defeated a team from the University of Florida to win the annual Florida/Georgia-Hulsey/Gambrell Moot Court Competition in Jacksonville. The long-running tournament is traditionally held the Friday before the Georgia-Florida football game. Two law students from each school compete as lawyers in a mock appellate case, and the victors earn the right to keep the championship trophy at their law school for the year. This year Senior U.S. District Judge William T. Moore Jr. and U.S. District Judge Lisa Godbey Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia, Senior U.S. District Judges William T. Hodges and Harvey Schlesinger and U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales Howard of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida served as judges for the event, which dates back to the early 1980s. This win brings the UGA School of Law's record to 23-11-2.
