Law Students Argue in Front of Justice Alito & Judge Clifton

On January 27th, 2011, law students from the William S. Richardson School of Law's Native American Moot Court team made oral arguments before U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard Clifton.

In this photo, third year law student Maxwell Kaanohi Kopper represented Judge Chippewa and the Rabbit River Tribe with his co-counsel Keani Alapa. Maxwell described arguing in front of Justice Alito as an event he'll "never forget."

Pictured above from left to right are Maxwell Kopper, Keani Alapa, Justice Samuel Alito, Judge Richard Clifton, Jeannin Russo, and Mark Jensen.

Justice Alito and Judge Clifton also took a photo with the Hawaii Native American Law Students Association chapter.
