Notre Dame Law Students Win at Moot Court Competitions

Author: Kevin Allen

Notre Dame Law School students earned some hardware this past weekend at Moot Court competitions in Washington, D.C., and Indianapolis.

The team of 2Ls Kayla Clark, Shannon Lewry, and Hope Tone won first place at the Seigenthaler-Sutherland Cup National First Amendment Moot Court Competition in Washington. The Program on Constitutional Structure sponsored the students.

The two-day Seigenthaler-Sutherland competition attracted teams from leading law schools across the United States. They argued hypothetical cases based on a current First Amendment controversy in front of panels of accomplished jurists, legal scholars, and attorneys.

In Indianapolis, Christine Fimognari and Rob Myers, both 2Ls, won best brief and advanced to the semi-finals at the Indiana State Bar Association Moot Court Competition.
