Ambria Lankford (’12) and India Williams (’12) recently earned an impressive second place finish in the Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition for the Southern Region. This year, twenty-two teams participated, making this strong overall team performance all the more impressive.
“Indeed, I have never seen better oral advocacy,” said Carodine. “Working with a challenging moot court problem, our team delivered superb oral arguments, round after round. It was an absolute pleasure to witness their command of the law, poised courtroom demeanor, and sheer intellectual stamina. I was extremely proud of their performance, and the entire law school community should be as well.”
Alabama Law’s Frederick Douglass Moot Court Team is sponsored by the Alabama Defense Lawyer’s Association.
