The School of Law proudly brought home the 2019-20 National Moot Court Competition title, making it the fourth time UGA has captured the prestigious top trophy. Notably, only one law school in the nation has captured more (Georgetown University has five).
The National Moot Court Competition is one of the oldest and most prestigious advocacy tournaments in the country. The 70-year-old competition regularly features teams from more than 120 law schools across the country, involving approximately 1,000 students each year.
Third-year law students Jonathan Kaufman, John Lex Kenerly IV and Joseph H. “Joe” Stuhrenberg represented UGA in the tournament, and Stuhrenberg was named the competition’s best oralist.
