State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission v. Stone, Brief for Petitioner (Runner-up, Best Brief Award, 2008 First Amendment Moot Court Competition). Embargoed until 2011.


The University of Georgia School of Law recently took first place in the 18th Annual National First Amendment Moot Court Competition, marking its third national advocacy title so far this academic year.

Third-year law students Leslie B. Horne and Emily E. Shingler defeated teams from schools such as New York University, the University of Washington and the University of Connecticut to win the competition. The pair also placed as runner-up for the Best Brief Award.

"It is a great honor to take first place in this competition, especially considering the high caliber of the other teams our school competed against," School of Law Director of Advocacy Kellie Casey Monk said. "Not only was it a great win, but it was also a wonderful opportunity for our students to gain more experience with the law, and in the courtroom, as it relates to the First Amendment."
