Patterson and Manna-Symone Middlebrooks competed last Saturday in the regional Marshall
Brennan Moot Court Competition held at Drexel University. Both Manna
and Allison advanced from large pool of competitors from numerous
Philadelphia high schools to the quarter finals of the competition.
Allison later advanced as a competition finalist where she argued in
front of two Philadelphia Common Pleas judges, Judge Cardwell-Hughes
and Judge Hill. As a result of her performance in final round, Allison
was awarded the second best oral advocate in the entire competition by
the two Philadelphia judges. She will represent SLA again in April
when she competes in the Marshall Brennan National Oral Argument
Competition. She was the only Sophomore to advance to the finals.
