Anna Bennett & Stephanie Wilson
These 2Ls represented UCI Law in the 10th annual National Animal Law Competition in February and ultimately placed third out of 17 teams in the NALC Appellate Moot Court Competition, beating teams from UCLA, University of Chicago, and Berkeley. Bennett also was one of four students awarded a "Rare Perfect Score During a Round," and received five out of six judges' votes for "Best Oral Advocate" in the preliminary rounds. "Anna and Stefanie worked extremely hard to represent UCI, and should be very proud of this result," said Prof. Trilby Robinson-Dorn, the team's coach. Wilson launched UCI Law's chapter of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, and her work as a volunteer law clerk with Best Friends Animal Society was recently featured in this article.
