The Denison University Moot Court team had a stellar experience at the National Moot Court Tournament, which took place at the Florida International University’s School of Law in Miami from Jan. 14 to 17. Denison brought five and one half teams to the competition, ranking it third in the nation for the number of teams that received national bids to attend.
Over three rounds of competition, the Denison team of seniors Jake Mihalov (Pittsburgh. Pa.) and Jane-Coleman Harbison (Nashville, Tenn.) broke into the second round of competition and were seeded 25th out of 62 national teams. In the next round, they lost to the eighth-seeded team from Holy Cross.
Denison also was awarded two of the top 25 awards for individual orator. Senior Betsy Fisher (Toledo, Ohio) was named the 21st ranked individual orator and, in an outstanding set of rounds averaging almost perfect scores, senior Brandon Haas (Fayetteville, Ark.) was named the third best orator in the nation.
