The authors wish to acknowledge the love and support that we have been blessed to receive from our families and friends. We have been fortunate to have had great moot court mentors who have inspired us and ultimately passed the proverbial torch to us so that we might inspire others. These are Daryl R. Fair, Don Gregory, and Don Smith.

Our moot courts have benefited tremendously from many of our colleagues who serve in academia and/or are members of the bar themselves. We would particularly like to thank Carolyn Barros, Keith Glenny, Sean Goodlett, Chris Lund, and Beth Walsh.

Moot court projects such as this book would not be possible without the assistance and support of the many fine office staff that have assisted us throughout the years. We owe a debt of gratitude to Lisa Blakeley, Jerilyn Doss, Cece Hannah, Tina Kelley, Amelia Marquez, Nancy St. Martin, and Karen Valeri.
