“It was an all UGA final” at the 3rd Annual Moot Court Competition in Legal Ethics and Professionalism held at Mercer Law School this past weekend said Georgia Law’s Director of Advocacy, Kellie Casey Monk, this morning. As Monk reported:
Third year mooters Nneka Egwuatu and Scott McAfee faced Chandler Smith and Tim Dean in the finals. Smith and Dean brought home the trophy! McAfee also brought home the Best Oralist award.

Also participating were Baylor (Waco, Texas), Elon University (Elon, N.C.), Emory University, Faulkner University (Mobile, Ala.), Florida Coastal (Jacksonville, Fla.), Georgia State University, John Marshall University, Pepperdine University (Los Angeles, Calif.), Stetson (Gulfport, Fla.), Saint Louis University (St. Louis, Mo.), Texas Tech University (Lubbock), University of Florida (Gainesville), University of Houston (Texas), and University of Mississippi (Oxford).
