King Hall Teams Compete in National Moot Court Competition in San Francisco

UC Davis School of Law Nationals Competitors

The UC Davis Moot Court Board sent two student teams to represent King Hall this past weekend at the San Francisco Regional Round of the National Moot Court Competition. Co-sponsored by the New York City Bar Association and the American College of Trial Lawyers, the National Moot Court Competition is one of the largest and most prestigious moot court competitions in the United States. The two King Hall teams participating in the National Moot Court Competition were comprised of current Moot Court Board members and some of the School of Law's most distinguished student appellate advocates.  

The first team was comprised of David Carl '14, Martin Freeman '14, and Joseph Uzarski '14. This team competed in oral arguments during the first day of the competition, with David Carl receiving a vote for Best Oral Advocate in their last round.

 The second team was comprised of Rebecca Dreyfuss '14, Sterling Elmore '14, and Daniel Shimell '14. This team competed in oral arguments during both days of the competition, including three back-to-back rounds on Saturday. After advancing to the semi-final round, the team came away with a narrow loss, missing out on the opportunity to advance to the final rounds of the competition in New York City by 0.2 points. Rebecca Dreyfuss and Daniel Shimell both received votes for Best Oral Advocate. Additionally, this team won the award for Second Place Brief.
