Sanchita Mukherjee ’21, Shianne Bowlin ’21, and Hilary Forsley ’20Maine Law students Shianne Bowlin ’21, Hilary Forsley ’20, and Sanchita Mukherjee ’21 competed in and won the Bryant-Moore Invitational Moot Court Competition on February 28-29, 2020.

Established in 2003, the Bryant-Moore Invitational is held annually at Howard University School of Law. It is one of the premier civil rights competitions in the nation and is named in honor of the Honorable William B. Bryant and the Honorable Luke Charles Moore.

“Winning the Bryant-Moore Moot Court Competition, was of course amazing,” said Sanchita Mukherjee. “But, arguing such an important civil rights issue in front of judges in D.C. is an experience I will never forget. For me, the most inspiring, and touching part of the experience began weeks before the competition, when alumni, members of other moot court teams, and professors went out of their way to moot and prepare us for the tournament. Coming home, it felt like we were sharing this prize with everyone at the Maine Law – everyone was so happy and excited to see us succeed!”
