The team of Kara Gordon (J.D. ’14), Janelle Alleyne (J.D. ’15), Nirvi Shah (J.D. ’15) and coach Gregory Fosheim (J.D. ’14) competed against teams from the universities of Maryland, Oklahoma and New Mexico, as well as St. Louis University.

“We are elated and this is truly an outcome to be proud of,” says Gordon, Moot Court president who placed second for best oralist. “Our team worked extremely hard and had great support from the Center for Law, Health & Society faculty.”

The competition is one of the premier moot court events. This year, it attracted 29 teams from 23 schools.
“Our dynamic team of women has demonstrated to the nation that Georgia State Law’s Health Law and Moot Court programs are forces with which to be reckoned,” Alleyne says.

“We fared so well simply based upon our preparation and hard work, both principles taught every day in the College of Law.”
