The Moot Court team at historically Black Morehouse College in Atlanta recently won the 2014-2015 national championship at the American Collegiate Moot Court Association’s national tournament that was held on the campus of Florida International University in Miami. The Morehouse College team was formed only two years ago. It defeated the defending champion Patrick Henry College in the finals. Patrick Henry College, located in Purcellville, Virginia, had won the competition for seven straight years.
The Morehouse team, consisting of students Rodje Malcolm and Emanuel Waddell, was the first team from a historically Black college or university to ever win the national moot court competition. The team was coached by Professor Winfield Murray.
“Rodje and Emanuel are stellar students who worked extremely hard to win this competition,” said Professor Murray. “They represented Morehouse superbly and without fault.”
