Moot Court Competition

In 2006, ALS sent the first team from Boalt to compete in the National Animal Advocacy Competition, held at Harvard Law School in February.

Working completely on their own with only the help of fellow students who substituted as judges during practice session, they did a fabulous job! Because of their efforts, Boalt has added the National Animal Advocacy Competition to its regular outside Moot Court Competition list!

What does this means for ALS and Boalt students? The next and future Animal Law Moot Court Teams will have complete coaching and funding support from Boalt!

Thank you to all of those that contributed to raising funds at our bake sale to send our team to Harvard in 2006!

And, of course, many thanks to our 2006 team:
Marguerite Hogan
