Jack Daniels v. The State of Sweetwater, Brief for Respondent (Best Brief, 2009 Intrastate Moot Court Competition). Embargoed until 2012.


The University of Georgia School of Law recently swept the Intrastate Moot Court Competition, which has teams from all five of the state's law schools vying for the top trophy.

Second-year law students S. Aliya Charlery, Alison L. Lee and Jonathan D. Parente won the Best Brief Award and defeated Georgia State University in the final round to take first place, while a second team from Georgia Law, composed of second-year students Sean P. Kane, Marie E. Greene and Elizabeth R. Story, finished as semi-finalists. Greene was named the competition's best oralist.

"I am extremely proud of our students and how they handled themselves against their peers in Georgia," the law school's Director of Advocacy Kellie Casey Monk said. "This competition is always a fun, but intense, rivalry among the law schools in Georgia."

This is the second year in a row Georgia Law has swept this tournament, winning all three trophies, and marks the school's fourth straight championship title.
