Atlanta, GA, April 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Atlanta's John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) moot team made history by winning the 2014 Georgia Intrastate Moot Court Competition. The victory represents a milestone for the law school.
Every year, law schools in the state of Georgia compete against each other at Intrastate, where student competitors are scored on written briefs and oral advocacy skills. Until this year, the University of Georgia (UGA) has enjoyed a comfortable eight-year winning streak.
This would all change in 2014 as the winning team, consisting of students Kimberly Stahl (Cartersville, GA), Daniel Ybanz (Port Orange, FL), Mathis Wilkens and Derek Gross, scored an upset. The AJMLS moot team defeated teams from the University of Georgia, Mercer University, Georgia State University and Emory University during the two-day event held at Emory University from March 21, 2014 to March 22, 2014.
Advancing to the final round of the competition were the moot teams from AJMLS and UGA. Kimberly Stahl and Mathis Wilkens represented the AJMLS Moot Team in the finals and went on to win the competition.
