Judge for a Day

On March 2, 2019, Attorney Jill Walsh had the honor of returning to serve as judge for the American Bar Association’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition, one of the most prestigious moot court competitions in the nation. Top law students from around the country participated in appellate arguments before judges sitting as the Supreme Court. The issue before the competitors was whether the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against “cruel and unusual punishment” places substantive limits on use of solitary confinement.  Jill adds, “It was my privilege to assess the advocacy skills, judgment, and professionalism of this next generation of attorneys.  The months of preparation paid off as they truly hit it out of the park. I wish those moving on to the national finals in Chicago the best of luck.”
