Every year the Hale Moot Court Honors Program Final proves to be one of USC Gould’s most exciting events with bright and ambitious students competing in front of an elite panel of judges. This year’s competition was no exception.
Professor Rebecca Lonergan, the faculty adviser for the Moot Court program said, “Every year, I am amazed at how well our students perform. They know the facts. They know the law. And they are so poised and persuasive under pressure. This year’s finalists were some of the best I’ve seen—better than most experienced practitioners. They have incredibly bright futures ahead of them as lawyers.”
