Students Alexis Wall and Mikias Negussie to compete in the Moot Court competition

Jackie Moreno, News Reporter

Congratulations to the two Rangeview students who will be traveling to Washington D.C. for a moot court competition, an extracurricular activity at many law schools in which participants take part in simulated court proceedings, which usually involves drafting briefs (or memorials) and participating in oral argument.

It’s always important to rep your school pride, whether through competition or school spirit. It shows that Rangeview is always going to be the top winners in everything and that if we aren’t, we always accept the loss in good terms.

Rangeview’s own Alexis Wall and Mikias Negussie are currently in the top 6 of 100 finalists to compete in the competition Moot court, which is held in Colorado Law each year. This event will allow students to compete against their peers from other Colorado high schools in oral argument rounds judged by local judges and lawyers.

“I’m excited about it because I get to go D.C., “ said Junior Alexis Wall, “but I’m nervous because it’s a lot of pressure to do well in the competitions.”

The two scholars are to travel to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Marshall-Brennan Moot Court Competition against other top high schools in the country while touring and viewing all the national landmarks as well.
