Alabama Law Students Compete in International Law Moot Court Competition

Chisolm Allenlundy, Mary Parrish Cobb, Hamilton Millwee, Peyton Patterson, and Mary Katherine White, all 3Ls, turned in an outstanding performance at the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. The team competed in the Southeastern Regionals in New Orleans.

The team was a perfect 4-0 in the preliminary rounds and earned the number one seed going into elimination rounds. After a resounding victory against Lewis & Clark in the quarterfinals, the team faced Emory in the semifinals. Despite a flawless performance by UA, Emory advanced to the finals.

Although the close loss was heartbreaking, it did not overshadow the UA team’s overall success, which also included the award for the fifth-best memorial (the Jessup term for a brief) and individual oralist awards for Allenlundy, Cobb, and Millwee.
