School of Law places in quarterfinals at national moot court competition

The School of Law recently finished as a quarterfinalist at the Pace National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition.

The trio of Georgia Law second-year students Leah C. Beverly, Alan G. Jones and Krista M. Marino finished ahead of more than 55 teams, including Rutgers at Camden and Chicago-Kent, to advance to the quarterfinal round. They were coached by third-year law student Audrey A. Lewis and associate professor Peter A. Appel.

This is the school’s first year competing in this preeminent environmental law competition, which draws more than 200 competitors nationwide and tests skills in appellate brief writing and oral advocacy on issues drawn from real cases and provides experience in environmental litigation.

This marks Georgia Law’s second national quarterfinalist finish this advocacy season, with the first coming at the National Moot Court Competition in February.
