Students at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh were recently named the winners of the 15th Annual National High School Moot Court Competition at American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C.
The competition brings together high school students from across the U.S. and abroad to showcase their oral advocacy skills.
Each competitor is assigned the role of respondent or petitioner. Students present an argument and answer questions posed by a panel of judges.
Moot court arguments are evaluated on the application of the law to the facts of the case.
Out of 60 competitors from 20 high schools, Trevor Lenzmeier was recognized as best respondent.
Stephanie Kelley, Daniel OConnell and Laura Sheridan also represented the school in the competition.
