A Moot Court Team from Belmont University College of Law recently competed in the Regional ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition. One of the two teams who participated won every round (on points or ballots) and emerged as regional champions. This team was made up of Jake Beggin, Emmie Futrell, Destiny Powell and Sarah Sims.
They defeated teams from LSU, Chapman, UCLA, Washington University and Michigan State. They also had the 4th best brief in the region out of 28 briefs and will be advancing to the National Finals tournament with another 23 teams from 6 regions to compete in Chicago in April.
A second team, comprised of students Caralisa Connell, Andy Goldstein, and Hannah Zeitlin, beat Faulkner but did not advance to the next round.
