Indiana Justice Steven David and U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch will serve as judges in the finals of the 20th Wabash College Moot Court Competition on Oct. 29, the college and the Indianapolis Association of Wabash men announced Monday.

Wabash alum and professor Lloyd (Tom) Wilson, a graduate of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, and Wabash President Gregory Hess also will serve as moot court judges.

The Crawfordsville School is among a few undergraduate institutions offering moot court. According to the college, about 30 alumni attorneys from across Indiana travel to the Crawfordsville campus each fall to teach Wabash students to judge appellate arguments and aid students in understanding the law and rhetoric.

This year’s case concerns the federal constitutionality of an amendment to a state constitution to prohibit any form of affirmative action in university admissions. The question is similar to those raised by a Michigan case before the U.S. Supreme Court this term, Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, 12-682.
