JEREMIAH CHIN AND JONATHON SANCHEZ REACH FINAL FOUR IN
NATIONAL NATIVE AMERICAN LAW STUDENT ASSOCATION MOOT COURT!
ASU’s Jeremiah Chin (2L) and Jonathon Sanchez (2L) competed in the 2013 National Native American Law Student’s Moot Court competition on Friday and Saturday, February 22nd and 23rd. Emerging from a field of 60 teams representing law schools across the nation, Jeremiah and Jonathon advanced to the Final Four before being knocked out by Columbia Law School. Jeremiah consistently delivered a stellar presentation and was clearly in the running for the top oralist award. Judge after judge noted his superior performance and command of the law and ability to apply the
analysis. One judge noted during the critiques, “Mr. Chin, you have such a strong presence and wonderful delivery that we didn’t want to interrupt you [with questions].” And yet another simply adopted a baseball analogy stating “you hit it out of the park.” Jeremiah and Jonathon developed and delivered a truly unique approach to their argument and an equally “out-of-the box” strategic presentation that carried them to the final four. In recent memory, no other team has advanced as far as Jeremiah or Jonathon in the NNALSA Moot Court Competition.
Congratulations to Jeremiah and Jonathon for an excellent job!
