Civil Rights Moot Court Team Makes Semi-finals

FEBRUARY 18, 2010—The Law School's Civil Rights Moot Court team—3Ls Dana Boraas, Anthea Dexter-Cooper, Ann Entwistle, and Sara Seeger—advanced to the semi-finals, and the respondent team, Dana Boraas and Ann Entwistle, received the Best Brief Award in the National Religious Freedom Moot Court competition February 5-6, 2010.

The competition was inaugurated by and hosted by George Washington University in Washington, D.C. This year’s problem dealt with the Establishment and Free Exercise clauses of the First Amendment and religious accommodations under Title VII, focusing on regulation of activities and dress of a police officer by a local police department.

In addition to their appellate advocacy skills, the team demonstrated their problem-solving skills by making creative travel arrangements home after the record-setting storms, dubbed "snowpocalypse," shut down the city.
