School of Law earns top moot court title

The School of Law captured the top trophy at the 23rd annual National First Amendment Moot Court Competition, which took place at Vanderbilt Law School in February.

Representing Georgia Law were third-year law students Katie A. Croghan from Dumfries, Va., and Mary Beth Martinez from Milledgeville. The duo competed against more than 30 teams.

The hypothetical case argued at the tournament was whether the act of tattooing is protected under the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment and whether a city ordinance restricting the tattooing of individuals to those holding a medical license or a special permit is constitutional.
