Students Hone Legal Skills for Moot Court

Jesse Calderon, Olivia Llanes, Neal Parekh and Verica Todorovic are getting some great experience for their future legal careers as the only undergraduate students in the country participating in an international moot court in Vienna this month.

As part of their work, the group is preparing two 30-page legal briefs and fine-tuning their arguments that will be presented to the court at Vienna University.
