Georgia Law brings home national championship


A team of UGA law school students went undefeated to bring home the first-place trophy from the Andrews Kurth Moot Court National Championship in Houston in January.

Third-year student Utrophia Robinson of Riverdale also won second best oralist and, with teammate third-year Maggy Randels, of Nashville, Tenn., won third best brief.

It was UGA’s first appearance in the invitational tournament, hosted for the sixth year by the University of Houston Law Center and Andrews Kurth LLC, which invites teams from the top 16 advocacy programs in the U.S. to compete. Invitations are based on each school’s recorded wins from the previous year in other moot court competitions.

UGA’s team beat Seton Hall, Georgetown and South Texas to reach the quarterfinals. The team then beat Georgetown again in the quarterfinals, topped Ohio State in the semifinals and defeated South Texas again to win the tournament.
