MIPTC Co-blogger Wins Best Advocate Award
Dad is proud, very proud indeed. My son and co-blogger, Michel J. Ayer, was just named "Best Advocate" in the University of Iowa College of Law's Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. He had the highest score for his "memorial" (brief) and highest score for oral advocacy. He said the win "caught [him] off guard."
He and his four teammates will begin preparing this fall for the 2006 Midwest Regional competitions held next February. The regional winners will advance to the International finals that are traditionally held in Washington, D.C. in March, 2006. Right now, though, he's basking in the award he received at last night's dinner ceremony. The competition is sponsored by the International Law Students Association.
Can you tell my buttons are bursting? Way to go Michel!
