CWRU Law School Advances to the Semifinals of the ICC Moot Court Competition

The CWRU International Criminal Court mock trial team: Caroline Ford, Gloria Neilson, Jazmine Edwards, Alan Dowling and Blair Mills

The CWRU International Criminal Court Moot Court team competed in the America round of the world-wide competition on March 14 and 15 - the first ICC competition to be held entirely online with video oral arguments due to restrictions related to the coronavirus. The team of Caroline Ford, Gloria Neilson, Jazmine Edwards, Alan Dowling and Blair Mills performed extremely well, advancing to the Semifinal Round where they lost a close round to the eventual tournament champion.

The Competition Problem concerned whether the CEO of a social media platform could be held criminally responsible for violence-inciting postings. The team is coached by CWRU Professors Michael Benza and Cassandra Robertson.
