Held in the Stephen D. Heninger Moot Court Room at the downtown Birmingham office, the original field of 20 competitors was narrowed down to a top six who paired off in the final rounds last week. The jury was comprised of HGD attorneys and staff, and HGD attorneys Anna Carroll, Callen Sparrow, and Taylor Bartlett presided over the competition as the judge.
HGD holds this competition for local law school students to help promote advocacy and reward those law students for advancing their advocacy skills. Congratulations to the winners and all the law students who participated in this competition.
