Junior Olivia Robbins Wins Top Orator in the Nation at Moot Court Competition
Congratulations to the Moot Court team from American Heritage Schools, Palm Beach Campus, for their participation in the National Moot Court Competition! As our seniors were walking across the stage, our underclassmen were arguing in the finals. The Moot Court team competed with the top 35 teams from across the nation, and, although they missed the experience of the more seasoned competitors due to graduation and other simultaneous competitions, our students' performance was remarkable.
The National Association of Moot Court hosted the National Tournament virtually this year. Olivia Robbins and Caitlin Yaralli's team were semifinalists and ranked 3rd overall. Olivia Robbins is ranked 1st Place Top Orator in the Nation. We are immensely proud of our students whose excellent execution at the national competition yielded them offers to join collegiate moot court teams of esteemed universities upon entering college. We cannot wait for next year!
