The UCI Law team competing in the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition performed exceptionally well at the Pacific Regional, where it faced 21 other schools, including UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Hastings, UCLA, and USC. The team was undefeated in the first four rounds, defeated USC in the quarter-finals, and made it to the semi-finals with three other teams. Team members Celeste Ahl, Jenny Hua, Sabyl Landrum, Rebecca Liu and Kate Wagner wrote two outstanding briefs (called “memorials”), winning First Place in the overall rankings by a wide margin. Kate Wagner won Third Place out of 88 competitors for oral advocacy, and Celeste Ahl won Fourth Place. All five team members together mastered extraordinarily complex facts and difficult international legal issues in this year’s problem. Full results here
