Two UT College of Law students spent their final week of law school arguing a case before the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. In court on April 30, third-year students Evan Rothey and Elizabeth Harwood argued two constitutional issues associated with their client’s trial: the client’s right to cross-examine a key witness; and the client’s right to have a public trial in an open courtroom. Clinic student attorneys Brooke Heavener and Nicholas Allen served as opposing counsel in preparation for the court appearance, and students Blake Tate, Benjamin Johnson, Benjamin Merry and William Beasley assisted with preparing oral arguments.
