Good luck to the National Moot Court Team!
The Moot Court Board wishes luck to our National Moot Court team this weekend as they travel to Richmond, Virginia, to argue at the 4th Circuit. Ben Basil and Barry Dunn will face Duke and Wake Forest in the preliminary rounds. Michael Gray and Marty Pohl will face West Virginia and Elon. The team is coached by Professor Sam Marcosson.
This year's issues are 1) whether imposing a life without parole sentence on a juvenile convicted of a non-homicide crime constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, and 2) what is the proper standard to apply for a motion for change of venuedue to pre-trial publicity.
