Split-stacked Team Lieb rounded out their season as a team at arguably the most competitive invitational of the fall semester, hosted by Haverford College Mock Trial in Philadelphia, PA. Team Lieb came away with 3 ballots and tied for the highest CS in the tournament (CS 20). Team Lieb dropped ballots against top-tier teams by extremely small margins, and everyone learned a lot from competing in the Nationals courthouse against some of the best teams in the country.
