Greensboro, NC -- Elon Law School is using a new competition to survive the economy.
The school announced it will host a national moot court competition starting next year. It will bring up to 100 law students from 32 law schools to the Triad each spring. They'll compete before panels of distinguished jurists and practicing attorneys from across the state, who will judge the students arguments and provide feedback.
Moot Court Board Member, student Craig Turner, "For the school to host its own tournament will provide an opportunity for students throughout the nation to experience something positive in their legal career here in Greensboro."
The first competition will take place next spring.
The Billings, Exum, & Frye National Moot Court Competition, is named in honor of Rhoda Billing Bryan, James G. Exum Jr, and Henry E. Frye, each of whom has served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina, and now serves as a member of the Elon University School of Law National Advisory Board.
