Hicks won the Best Oralist award and Rachel Marshall (Class of 2011) won Second Best Oralist. The team of Drake and Hicks won the Second Best Brief award.
“The problem this year was on the national healthcare law. Having spent some time studying this issue in preparation for my own oral argument later this year, I can say that the problem was very well done and very close to the actual facts,” according to Mathew D. Staver, Dean of Liberty University School of Law.
“I am very proud of the law school’s students and the law school’s tradition of excellence,” concluded Staver.
