Kudos for the Wagner Moot Court Team

Congratulations to the Wagner Moot Court Team on an excellent performance.  In all three preliminary rounds, they received glowing feedback, although we did not advance to the next round.  In the first round, the judges stated of Kristen Staley and Ben Basil that they did a “really good job fielding questions, knowing the cases, and knowing the facts.”  The judges concluded: “It was nice to see they had put in the necessary work.”  In the second round, Heather Sidwell and Ben Basil argued on behalf of the employer.  The judges stated that Heather’s presentation was “very good.”  She “was poised and responsive and kept the judges boxed in” on her points.  The judges (ironically) stated that Ben “was very convincing and clearly believed in his argument.”  In the third round, the judges noted that they were “throwing tough questions,” and that Ben and Kristen handled them well and had good mastery of the law.
