The semifinal round of this spring’s Jenkins Moot Court Competition took place last night. As previously described, sixteen top students from the Appellate Writing and Advocacy Class were invited to compete in the Jenkins Competition, in teams of two. Last week, that field of eight teams was narrowed to four. Last night’s arguments narrowed the competition to the final two teams. The finalists are Alyssa Dowse and Timothy Sheehey, arguing against Jessica Farley and Brent Simerson.
Congratulations and good luck to the finalists. The final argument will take place at the Milwaukee Federal Courthouse at 6 p.m. this Thursday, April 2. Join us to see two terrific oral arguments, and the exciting outcome of the year’s competition. More information about the competition and the schedule of the events on Thursday, including the argument and the reception afterwards, can be found here.
