Mortlock is from Kansas, and worked for a time as a political campaign consultant. Now she’s executive editor of the GMU law review, where she has a comment on a delicious First Amendment hypothetical: what would TV station do if a political candidate used indecent material in a proposed campaign ad? Broadcasters usually keeps hands off campaign ad content, but the FCC does not look kindly on indecency. Mortlock is headed for a clerkship with 9th Circuit judge Carlos Bea after graduation. Clarke has not nailed down plans after graduation, but aims to be a litigator in a small or medium firm. He’s from D.C. and worked as an account executive at a drug company before taking the law school plunge. They're both terrific oral advocates already.
One other note: In response to an earlier post about the competition, an anonymous emailer, apparently from a losing team in the competition, posted a comment raising issues about how it is run. The post, and my response, are on view, and others, including representatives of the moot court board, are invited to join in the discussion.
