Sophomore Success in Court Competition!

Sophomores Allison 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.
