Eugenia Anane-Wae, a South Mountain High School Law Magnet student, became a National Champion at the Marshall-Brennan National Moot Court Competition at American University in Washington, D.C., this past Saturday.
Four South Mountain students took part in the competition that is fashioned after an appellate oral argument, similar to what would occur in the United States Supreme Court. Markaya Hill, who was one of four finalists, Alexis Carter, one of 24 national semifinalists and Logan Spahr competed against high school teams, coached by 14 colleges of law. South’s team is coached by ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law students.
The two final matches featured South Mountain (Anane-Wae and Hill) and ASU against Connecticut high school students trained by Yale Law School students.
Over 500 urban high school students participate in the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project nationally, studying constitutional law with law-school students. The project is named after former Supreme Court Justices Thurgood Marshall and William Brennan.
Anane-Wae is the second national champion from South Mountain in six years of the program. Ambra Jordan won in 2009. Matthew Smith, Law Magnet Program Manager accompanied the team.
