European Moot Court
In the fall of 2004, a pilot team of four BC Law students was assembled: Carolyn Bella Kim, Charity Clark, Robert M. McGill, and Christine Zemina. They submitted two briefs to the European Moot Court Competition, one for applicant, one for respondent, with a synopsis of the arguments in French, as required by the rules of the competition.
Ninety-two teams from throughout the world (only 7 of which were American: Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown, BU, BC, Cardozo and Indiana) submitted briefs. Only forty-eight teams would be invited to the regional competitions.
It was not until late January that the team received notice that they were invited to participate in the Regional Finals to be held in February in Madrid. Of the American teams submitting briefs, only BC, Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown and Indiana would go to a regional competition. BC would be the only American representative in Madrid.
