Mini-Moot Tackles Facebook Issue

Posted by David Logan on 05/22/2012 at 03:19 PM

The annual 1L Moot Court competition wrapped up as the spring semester wound down.  Almost 70 1Ls argued the merits of a cutting edge issue—whether the First Amendment prohibited school officials from sanctioning students debating a school-related issue on Facebook.  It was a hectic day for the Moot Court Board, but the competitors were winnowed down to the finalists, Samantha Clarke and Nick Denice, with Nick ending up #1.  Congratulations to all the competitors!
