UT Moot Court Team Wins Second Consecutive
Regional Championship at
2010 Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition

The University of Texas School of Law brought home another championship title during the Rocky Mountain Regional rounds of the 2010 Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 13-17, 2010.

UT Law students Yasmeen Belal ('10) and Catherine Moran ('10) beat Oklahoma University in the final round to win the Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition Regional Championship. The team will now advance to the competition's national rounds held March 10th-14th in Boston, Massachussets. Belal and Moran also won the regional championship in this competition last year.

The Frederick Douglass team is coached by Kameron Johnson ('92), a juvenile public defender for Travis County. Johnson has been with the Frederick Douglass Moot Court teams for many years and has coached UT students to several regional and national championships during his tenure.

Founded in 1968, the National Black Law Students Association sponsors both the Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition and the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition. Students from law schools across the nation compete in six regions to determine which teams will advance in each competition. The national rounds for both competitions are held in conjunction with NBLSA's Annual Convention.
