BLSA Moot Court Team Advances 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 third place finish at Mid-Atlantic Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition.

In addition, the school’s BLSA chapter was recognized as “small chapter of the year” by the national organization.

W&L fielded two teams for the moot court competition, and students also competed in the mock trial competition at the regional conference, held in Portsmouth, Virginia on Feb. 7-11. The team of 2L Angelique Rogers and 1L Junior Ndlovu advanced. They will head to Brooklyn in March for the national competition.

This is the seventh year teams from W&L have competed in the BLSA moot court and mock trial competitions. W&L teams have advanced to nationals every year.
