September 17, 1982
On this day, the IU School of Law-Indianapolis student moot court team and their faculty adviser were honored at the school's Law Alumni Day event for taking first place in the American Bar Association's National Advocacy Competition during the summer. The team competed against a large number of other schools to win first prize.
The team, made up of three June 1982 graduates and one senior student, had begun preparations in January under the guidance of School of Law professor Harold Greenberg. Team members also won first place for the brief they collectively prepared for the hypothetical case and second place for individual advocacy.
The Indianapolis law school, now called the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law, for many years has had a strong moot-court-competition tradition.
