Luke McCloud Argues Moot Court Case at William & Mary Law School’s 35th Annual Supreme Court Preview

September 2022

Partner Luke McCloud participated in William & Mary Law School’s 35th Annual Supreme Court Preview, held September 16-17, 2022 and sponsored by the Law School’s Institute of Bill of Rights Law (“IBRL”). The event featured prominent academics, four federal court of appeals judges, leading Supreme Court advocates who have collectively argued more than 500 cases before the court, and Supreme Court reporters from the nation’s top newspapers. The preview officially began with its heralded Moot Court, this one considering Moore v. Harper, an important elections law case currently pending before the Court. Luke and Morgan Ratner, of Sullivan & Cromwell, argued the case in the academic exercise, and the moot court judges peppered the advocates with questions and difficult hypotheticals. “The advocacy at the preview moot, as usual, was first-rate, but it was particularly impressive this year because the briefing at the actual Supreme Court is not complete yet . . . Luke and Morgan had to be creative, and they rose to the challenge, demonstrating to our students and everyone in the room what true excellence in advocacy looks like,” said Professor Allison Orr Larsen, Director of the IBRL.
