Moot Court Team Cements Spot in National Rankings

The Michigan State University College of Law Appellate Moot Court team finished strong at the Andrews Kurth Moot Court “Best of the Best” National Championship, which took place January 22–25, 2014. Third-year students Lian Anthony, Corinne Miller, and Scott Milligan placed fifth in the competition, earning points toward the team’s national ranking.

 This was a particularly strong finish given the nature of the event. The University of Houston’s “Best of the Best” championship competition is an invitation-based competition; invitations were earned by schools finishing in the top 16 rankings based on 2012–13 performance. This was the first year Michigan State Law, which was ranked 15th in 2013, earned an invitation to compete.

“That our program finished in the top 16 last year, and placed 5th among the top teams competing in Houston this year, is no small accomplishment,” remarked Professor Jennifer Copland, who coached the moot court team in Houston. “These students worked incredibly hard and represented the Law College admirably.”

Corinne Miller also will represent the College of Law at the national finalist rounds of the National Moot Court Competition in New York City on February 10–14, 2014, along with third-year students Glynis Talley and Vani Gujuluva. “Stay tuned,” said Professor Copland. “This is not the last you’ll be hearing of our team’s accomplishments.”
