National Moot Court Team Reaches National Finals 

The University of Memphis National Moot Court Team, second-year law students Chelsea Harris and Courtney Sharp, were finalists at the regional competition and advance to the final rounds in New York City.  The regional competition was held in November at the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville and featured teams from eleven law schools in Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.  Chelsea and Courtney defeated Mississippi College in the first preliminary round and then narrowly fell to Belmont University.  They advanced to the quarterfinals, where they defeated Louisiana State University and then they defeated the University of Tennessee in the semifinals.  They fell to Loyola New Orleans in the final round.

The Memphis team now meets up with the other top teams in the Nation in New York City in February.  Approximately 200 teams compete in the National Moot Court Competition.  The top two teams from each region advance to the National Finals.  The Young Lawyers’ Division of the New York City Bar Association hosts the competition.

The Memphis team prepared for the competition in the fall with their coach, Director of Advocacy Barbara Kritchevsky.  Numerous students, faculty and alumni judged practice rounds.  The team will be in preparations for New York in the month of January.
