HSAS Moot Court Team wins City Champs!

December 10, 2017

This past Thursday, December 7th, the HSAS Moot Court team competed in the city finals against Brooklyn Tech. After weeks of studying case law, attending practices at Dechert Law Firm, and competing at Fordham University Law School, Rachel Dennis and Jaileen Pierre-Louis argued for the petitioner at the Thurgood Marshall Federal Courthouse. The entire team, including Eva Link, Sam Trottenberg, Jacob Santelli, and Jade Lozada and the coach Ms. Peterson, worked tremendously hard and the team was happy to celebrate the collective victory with family and friends who showed up to support the team.
