Antigua State College defeated St Anthony’s Secondary School in the second annual Fortis Advocatus Moot Court Competition put on by the National Mooting Association of Antigua and Barbuda on Saturday.

The contest was a simulation of court proceedings in the form of a hypothetical mock trial – centred on vaccine mandates.

Aria-Rose Brown and Kioja Burke from St Anthony’s went head to head with Faith Samuel and Nadisha Jardine of the Antigua State College but the latter team took home the winning prize.

The winning team won an internship at St John’s-based legal firm Richards & Company while the second place team will be interning at the Ministry of Legal Affairs.

Samuel also got a prize for best speaker.
