BLSA Moot Court Headed Back to Nationals

The Washington and Lee School of Law Black Law Students Association (BLSA) moot court team has advanced to the national competition following a second place finish at Mid-Atlantic Thurgood Marshall Moot Court Competition.

The team of 3L Angelique Rogers and 2L Junior Ndlovu advanced. They will head to Little Rock, AR in March for the national competition. Rogers and Ndlovu also advanced to the national finals last year.

W&L fielded teams for both the moot court and mock trial competitions held in Annapolis during the Mid-Atlantic Black Law Students Association (MABLSA) conference. The conference also serves as an opportunity for students to network with other students as well as practitioners and potential employers.
