Asylum & Refugee Law National Moot Court Competition
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 3, 2012
The UC Davis Asylum & Refugee Law National Moot Court Competition took place over the weekend. It is the only immigration law moot court competition on the West Coast and the only moot court competition in the nation devoted exclusively to asylum and refugee law. Participants tested their advocacy skills before distinguished members of the judiciary, attorneys and legal scholars who served as judges. Schools from across the country took part in the competition.
I was at the Law School for Friday night's preliminary rounds, and there was a lot of great positive energy throughout King Hall! Among the judges for the finals on Saturday were Judge William Shubb and our own Professor Emeritus Cruz Reynoso.
Look for a wrap-up of the competition, including the big winners, in the news section of the UC Davis School of Law website in the coming days!
