NoHo High earns honors at Duke

February 24, 2009|Raja Abdulrahim

A group of students from North Hollywood High School argued their way to two first place awards in the Duke Moot Court competition held at Duke University in Durham, N.C., over the weekend.

The annual constitutional law debate tournament, organized by a Duke undergraduate student group, challenges students to argue both sides of a legal issue using only past Supreme Court decisions for research. This year's issue was the use of affirmative action in education, said North Hollywood coach Paul Landau.

This is the sixth year North Hollywood participated. This year, the school swept the first and second places in team and individual competition. In all they won two team and seven individual awards of a total of 12 awards, Landau said.
