Last week, four second-year students presented oral arguments at the Florida Supreme Court as part of our Moot Court Team’s Final Four Competition. After an introduction by faculty advisor Nat Stern, the John W. & Ashley E. Frost Professor, the students argued in front of Florida Supreme Court justices and First DCA judges. Many of our other students and faculty members walked across the street to attend the competition. It was an honor to watch our talented students and to see how prepared they were. Congratulations to 2Ls Mallory Neumann, Brenda Czekanski, Dominique Mortimer and William Homer (pictured above L-R with justices and judges) on accomplishing something that many practicing lawyers never do. Special congratulations to Neumann, who placed first. We are all so grateful for the justices and judges who participate in this competition every year. We’re also thankful for the many alumni and friends who support the Moot Court Team and our other co-curricular organizations. Last week’s competition was generously sponsored by Stephen and Susan Turner.
