Nov. 22, 2019

William Killmeyer, a 2016 Slippery Rock University graduate with a degree in criminology, won "Best Brief" in the Burton D. Wechsler National First Amendment Moot Court Competition.

Moot court competitions are extracurricular activities for law students who argue simulated cases. The Wechsler competition is hosted by the Moot Court Honor Society at American University's Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C.

Killmeyer, a third-year student at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, was part of a team of three students from CMCL to win Best Brief. He is also president of the CMCL team.

Killmeyer is the son of Mary Hennessey, SRU assistant to the provost.
