Last night was the 9th Annual Monmouth College Moot Court competition. We had 4 very strong student advocates arguing the case; all did an outstanding job! Those four students were Joe Doner, Jared Hankinson, Emma Hildebrand, and Hadley Smithhisler.

The judges had a tough decision, but awarded Emma Hildebrand as the top advocate. Congratulations, Emma!

We are also grateful for the support of our excellent volunteer judges, Mike Connell, Sara Kitsch, and Justice Thomas Kilbride.

If you see any of these folks, please congratulate them on an excellent competition!
