Two Emory Law students placed at a recent law and religion moot court competition at Touro Law Center in New York. Greg Richardson (JD 2016) was named second best oralist. Ashley Barnett (JD 2016) was named third best oralist. Two teams represented Emory Law in the competition: They were Barnett and Melonie Wright (JD 2016) and Richardson and Andrea Natale (JD 2017). The problem involved a prisoner's claim that his right to practice his Islamic religion was violated when the prison denied his request for a nightly congregational service after the evening meal and his request for a religious diet.
