Four Campbell Law School advocates will participate in the National Moot Court Competition’s regional rounds on Nov. 6-7, 2020. This year, the competition will be held virtually due to COVID-19.
Each year, Campbell Law sends two teams to this competition. Third-year students Chelsey Wilson and Jordan Arroyo comprise one team and are coached by Campbell Law alumnus Richard Waugman ’12. Another Campbell Law alumnus, Hunt Willis ’13, is coaching the second team of Campbell advocates, third-year students Ben Aydlett and Savannah Singletary. In 2012, Willis advanced to the final four and authored the fifth-best brief at the National Moot Court Regional Competition (Region IV) in Richmond, Va.
The National Moot Court Competition hosts more than 150 law schools each year in regional rounds throughout the country. This competition is widely-recognized and strives to promote the art of appellate advocacy through intellectual rigor and persuasive argument. This competition allows students to develop and hone their appellate advocacy skills by arguing in front of prominent members of the profession. Students must also write and submit an appellate brief on the issues presented in the transcript prior to the regional round in November.
