For the first time in school history, the Barry Law Moot Court team advanced to the Final Four at the Robert Orseck Memorial Moot Court Competition held in Orlando.

The Orseck Competition is a major event at the Florida Bar’s Annual Convention, culminating in the final round before all the Florida Supreme Court justices. Because Florida boasts some of the nation's top moot court programs, advancing to the final four is a major accomplishment.

Barry Law’s team – Jami Millhouse, David Angley, and Charles Hamilton – made the cut from 12 to 4 teams. Judges from Florida’s District Courts of Appeal judged the semi-final rounds. Barry faced Stetson in the semi-final rounds, and all the judges said the competition was very close.

Barry’s Final Four finish was all the more gratifying in that we had two first-time advocates arguing against the seasoned Stetson team. Although Jami Millhouse has competed previously as a brief writer, this was her first competition as an advocate. 

Barry Law's Moot Court Team is coached by Jonathon Blevins.
