Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) March 31, 2012
Charlotte School of Law, the only law school in North Carolina’s most-populous city, hosted a day-long moot court competition for high school students from both Carolinas on Friday, March 30 titled “Battle of the Carolinas: We the People Moot Court Competition.”
The program began at 9 a.m. at Charlotte School of Law, located in Bryant Park at 2145 Suttle Ave.
The competition featured simulated Congressional hearings on issues related to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, including oral presentations by high school teams to a panel of three judges. Students provided an initial four-minute presentation followed by a six-minute period to answer questions from the judges. Winning teams from the Battle of the Carolina may advance to a national competition.
“We are excited by the spirit and the energy these aspiring young legal minds will bring to the school,” said Denise Spriggs, interim dean at Charlotte School of Law. “Studying and analyzing issues related to the Constitution and Bill of Rights is a great introduction to legal education and can often times provide experienced members of the legal community with a unique and fresh perspective.”
“We the People” is an in-depth study of American principles that provides perspective on the formation of the Constitution and its interpretation at various points throughout history.
