GEORGIA LAW TAKES THREE AWARDS AT THE REGIONAL JESSUP COMPETITION

The University of Georgia School of Law won three awards at the 2003 Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Regional Competition held Feb. 20-23 in Memphis, Tenn.

The team, comprised of second-year students J. Brian Edwards, John M. Moorhead, Beth L. Cavagnolo and Dawn S. Caesar, placed second in the Best Brief category. Additionally, Edwards placed third in the Best Oralist category, and Caesar placed fifth in the best oralist segment.

Third-year students Katie R. Lahnstein acted as coach and Tiana S. Mykkeltvedt served as brief editor. Attorney Myra K. Creighton served as the team's advisor.

The team as a whole placed second in the regional competition behind Duke University, just missing the opportunity to advance to the national round.

School of Law Director of Advocacy Kellie R. Casey said the team argued their case "exceptionally well. However, unfortunately they came up short with the judging panel."

For the past two years, Georgia Law has been a national finalist in this prestigious moot court competition.
