UGA SCHOOL OF LAW WINS ANNUAL MOOT COURT CHALLENGE OVER FLORIDA FOR THE FIFTH STRAIGHT YEAR

Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia School of Law's dominance over the University of Florida continues in the courtroom. For the last 23 years on the eve of the annual Georgia-Florida football clash, law students from each school have met to argue a fictitious appellate case in front of a distinguished panel of state and federal judges. Last Friday, Georgia Law triumphed over Florida for the fifth straight year in the Hulsey-Kimbrell Moot Court Competition and now leads the series 17-4-2.

Georgia Law's winning team included third-year students Trinity M. Hundredmark and Jeffrey P. Shiver. Third-year student Jason M. Tate coached the pair.

Georgia Law Director of Advocacy Kellie R. Casey said she could not have been prouder of the team. "There is a lot of pressure each year on this team to win due to our strong history of competing against Florida. No team wants to be the one to break the current streak," she said.
