Southwestern Moot Court Competition
Southwestern's SCALE® students dominated in the 2014 Southwestern Moot Court competition. Advocates Gillian Ramos and Scott A. Adrian reached the final round at the Ninth Circuit Appellate Court in Pasadena. Ramos won First Place Oralist, and Adrian earned the Second Place Oralist title.
"Making it to the final round was amazing," Scott A. Adrian said. "I feel honored and humbled to have gone against so many great advocates. Going off brief in the final round was an experience I'll never forget."
Judge Gordon, one of the presiding judges in the final round remarked, "I supervise family law in LA, and I wish the lawyers that came before me had the command of the law and the facts that you do. I thought you both did a great job and were organized and smooth."
Southwestern Trial Advocacy Honors Competition
