I am currently in Boston serving as coach to two teams of Marquette law students who are competing in the National Appellate Advocacy Competition’s Boston Regional Competition. The teams are Alyssa Dowse, Rachel Helmers, and Nicholas Harken (this month’s student blogger); and Jesica Ballenger, Lindsey Johnson, and Allison Ziegler. This evening at 5:30 p.m. both teams argued off brief in their first round. I am delighted to report that both teams won!
The next round happens tomorrow evening. Both teams will be arguing on brief, so I am feeling very optimistic about their chances. Wish the teams luck! I will keep you posted.
