Charlotte School of Law has two teams competing in moot court competitions in South Africa this fall.
Lynna Moen and Bo Caudill will represent CSL at the University of the Free State Moot Court Competition in Bloemfontien, South Africa the first week of October. The moot court problem, based on South African family law, is based on the relief sought by a same-sex couple in a divorce case. The facts could only happen in a moot court competition or law school exam and include the death of 7 people, a coup, a separate terrorist and hostage situation, adultery, rape, a bio child, an adopted child, an unborn child and embryos in storage. And a million dollar inheritance!
In addition, LaKisha Jones and Candace Davis have filed briefs in the World Human Rights Moot Court Competition. Finalists, from each of the UN sectors, will be will be chosen based on the briefs and will travel to Pretoria, South Africa in December for oral argument.
Both teams worked very hard over the summer on their briefs and Lynna and Bo have spent almost every available minute for the last 3 weeks on practice rounds.
Looking forward to competition!
