Emily and her Wake Forest School of Law teammates won all five of their oral arguments and tied for the second-best brief, which earned them a runner-up finish at the Region IV tournament held in Richmond, Virginia and a place at Nationals.

2018 will mark the fifth straight year that Wake Forest School of Law has reached the finals in the National Moot Court Competition.

Emily was a proud member of the Doane Stuart Mock Trial Team and had this to say about her experience, “The Doane Stuart Mock Trial program set me up for success in law school. My Mock Trial experience gave me the confidence to try out for Moot Court and apply for the National Team. It all started at Doane Stuart, and I am so grateful for the mentors who helped me develop skills that will last a lifetime.”

Congratulations Emily and good luck to you and your team!
