Vanderbilt Law students Peter Cornick and Elizabeth Holden won the 2019 Bass Berry & Sims Moot Court Competition held earlier this month at Vanderbilt Law School, receiving the John A. Cortner Award and a cash prize for their win. The competition’s final round was argued before a panel of three federal appellate judges, including Judge Stephen A. Higginson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, who served as the round’s Chief Justice, Judge David J. Barron of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Later in the month, Abigail Wood and Chandler Ray took home top honors at the school's 2019 Mock Trial Competition, held on Feb. 15. The competition was sponsored by King & Spalding.
