Students represent KU in Moot Court Competition

Joining Harvard, American and Queens Universities, four School of Law graduate students will represent the University of Kansas in Geneva next month.

“It’s no more of a surprise [to see KU Law listed amongst these prestigious universities] than it should be to see Kansas Jayhawks in the final four of the NCAA tournament,” said Raj Bhala, an Associate Dean with the School of Law. “We’re a darn good law school and have a darn good international and comparative law program.”


The international finals is a return trip for the Jayhawks, as the 2009 KU Law team traveled to the international finals in Taiwan. The School of Law sponsors both travel and competition entry expenses.

“Success at these competitions enhances our global name brand and thereby opens doors for our students to get jobs around the world and encourages prospective law students to come to KU,” Bhala said. “It also opens doors for our faculty to enter into research and teaching and moot court collaboration with international schools.”
