Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia School of Law recently captured second place out of more than 150 teams from across the country at the 63rd Annual National Moot Court Competition, which was held in New York City last month.

Representing Georgia Law were third-year students Lucas D. Bradley, Michael C. Gretchen and Matthew V.H. Noller. The trio defeated teams from Baylor University, Case Western Reserve University, Louisiana State University, Loyola University Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania to take home the second-place trophy. Additionally, Gretchen was named Best Oralist of the competition.

"I am so proud of our students for their outstanding performance in this tournament," said Kellie Casey, Georgia Law director of advocacy. "They worked tirelessly to prepare for this event, as did several of our faculty members and alumni who helped coach the team. It is rewarding to see everyone's hard work pay off."

The tournament is sponsored by the New York City Bar Association and the American College of Trial Lawyers.
