SLA Beeber Student Wins Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Moot Court Competition

Mikayla Brailsford
SLA Beeber Junior, Mikayla Brailsford competed in the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Moot Court Competition at Drexel University. She will be traveling to Washington, DC for the national competition. Congratulations, Mikayla!

From the website: 

"The competition is the culmination of the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, which engages pupils from urban high schools and allows law students to serve as mentors who teach the teens about the power of the U.S. Constitution and its relevance in their lives.

Law students teach lessons on the legal system and the constitution at Philadelphia high schools and then groom interested teens for moot court competitions.

The local competition was judged by Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge John Milton Younge, a nominee to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Marlene Lachman and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Michael Fanning.

The winners.....will travel to Washington, D.C. with their mentors for the national competition on April 8."
