The power of a good argument and a couple of pairs of leopard shoes helped propel Tatiana Hamilton and Katie Winbauer to a narrow victory in the finals of UND’s intra-school moot court competition.
Members of North Dakota’s Supreme Court judged the competition Wednesday evening, a tradition that stretches back years, but offers students an opportunity few others get at a young age, arguing a case in front of their state’s highest court.
“This is as close to a real life experience as our students could possibly have,” Ariana Meyers, faculty adviser for the moot court board, said. “Our North Dakota Supreme Court is very interactive with our law school and with our students. That is something that sets UND Law School apart from other law schools.”
