CAL had the privilege of sponsoring the Eagle Academy of Harlem in the Metropolitan Mentor Moot Court Competition for high school students, conducted by the Justice Resource Center and Fordham Law School. After learning constitutional law and appellate advocacy in less than a month, our Eagle Academy students showed up in full force on November 15 for the preliminary round, finishing just behind the two top teams for the day -- an excellent showing for a first-year team, especially since one of our students had to fill in last minute and learned the problem last night! We await news of whether we earned a Wildcard slot for the next round, but win or lose, we are thrilled and proud of our mentees’ accomplishments, future advocates all!
