USD School of Law Moot Court Prepares for 2019 2020 Season
The Moot Court Board has been working hard to prepare for our upcoming competitions,” said Bijan Bewley, a third-year law student and moot court president. "The writing retreat really gave us a boost in the critical skills we need to not only compete but to excel against teams from around the nation. This next year is going to be really exciting.”
Fourteen students comprise the USD Law Moot Court Board. Writing retreat sessions included team building exercises, writing exercises and discussions with Professor Sean Kammer, who serves as adviser to the board, and lectures from former South Dakota Supreme Court Justice Judith Meierhenry and former South Dakota Attorney General Mark Meierhenry.
“We are beyond grateful for the Meierhenrys’ generosity in sharing their experiences, their unparalleled wisdom, and their home with us,” said Kammer. "It was truly an invaluable experience for the students as well as for me. We look forward to an outstanding year.”
The Moot Court team’s first tournament is the Leroy R. Hassell, Jr. Tournament hosted by Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
