Nov 8, 2019–Stan State Students Shine in CJ's First Moot Court competition
Congratulations to Stan State’s Moot Court Team (CJ 3125) for their advancement to the “Sweet 16” and their hard work and effort at the Western Regional Tournament. The Department sent three teams of two students each to the Western Regional Moot Court Tournament at Fresno State over the weekend to flex their oral advocacy muscles against 36 teams coming from established programs at USC, Irvine, San Francisco State and many others. Our “Semantic Warriors” advocated in three rounds in an effort to make the “Sweet 16” and advance to Saturday’s elimination rounds. One team did just that, as Ana Villegas (criminal justice) and Manroop Chandi (political science), scored higher than students with more experience from established programs. Ana and Manroop advocated with gusto Saturday morning, but the panel of judges awarded higher scores to opposing counsel from Fresno State. Congratulations also to Mooters Elizabeth Alejandre, Dustin Costello, Kyle Mitchell and Tyler Nitz for all of their hard work and competitive spirit. As one Mooter was heard to say, “Just wait until next year, Bulldogs!”
