Labor and Employment Moot Court Team Writes Best Petitioner’s Brief

March 20, 2018

Robert Dyar, Morgan Epperson, and J.T. Lewis, all 3Ls, performed well in the Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court competition at New York Law School in Manhattan during the first weekend of Spring Break.

They competed in six rounds of oral argument over two days against teams from across the country, including the University of Houston, Georgia State, and Seton Hall. They advanced through the initial rounds and made it to the semi-finals before losing to an excellent team from Southwestern, the eventual winner of the competition. The Alabama team was recognized for writing the Best Petitioner’s Brief and finished in third place overall in a field of 40 teams.

The team members appreciate the support and guidance of Coach Roger Williams (’69). Professors Anita Kay Head, Cameron Fogle, Stan Murphy, Daiquiri Steele and team alumni Emily Vande Lune (’16 ) and Beth Howland (’17), of Bressler, Amery & Ross in Birmingham, provided helpful advice in practice rounds.
