GW Triumphs Again
As I noted here, George Washington won the first-ever space moot in 1992 in Washington DC, and came back to win it again in 2005 in Fukuoka, Japan.
Congratulations from SLP to 2007 moot court galactic gladiators Magin Puig Monsen (J.D. '06, LL.M. '07) and D.J. Western (LL.M. '07) on prevailing in Emeralda v Mazonia ("The Case Concerning International Liability"). Space moot counsel, pictured here, took their skills and legal scholarship to the exciting world finals last week in Hyderabad, India and brought back the gleaming trophy.
And here are all the results from the 2007 space moot competition:
