The Traynor Moot Court Competition returns to the Federal Courthouse in Fresno starting April 2nd. It is the second time San Joaquin College of Law has played host to the event. (In 2013 fourteen law schools came to the Valley to compete, including teams from Berkeley, Hastings, McGeorge, and Davis. San Joaquin College of Law was thrilled to take the Roger J. Traynor trophy for Best Oral Argument. Pictured above are members of that winning team, including George Vasquez, Amanda DeHart, and James Mugridge.)
