The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Inter-American Court of Human Rights moot court team, composed of students Kari Lee and Shaneel Myles, and coached by UB alumnae Julianne Montes de Oca, J.D ’13, and Hayley Tamburello, J.D. ’13, won the award for the best brief in English at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights moot court competition on May 25 at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. UB also was represented by Associate Professor Nienke Grossman, who served as a judge in the final round of the oral competition for the first time.
This year's competition included 91 teams from 24 countries. Brazil was the most heavily represented with 24 teams. Most teams competed in Spanish, but English was represented by the US, Singapore, India, France, Belgium, Canada, and a strong contingent from the Caribbean. Kari and Shaneel competed in the oral rounds against Jamaica and Argentina.
