Ashley Barnett (JD 2016) was team captain and Anton Sorkin (LLM 2016) was brief writer. Dr. Mark Goldfeder was coach. The team advanced to the finals after submitting briefs last semester. The problem regarded prayer in public school. The Law School at University of Notre Dame won the competition.

“It was truly an opportunity to put our classroom knowledge into practice in a courtroom,” Tobias said. “What a terrific experience, I feel very blessed.”
