In the Feb. 6 article, Robertson discussed how he spent his winter break drafting a recommendation for the case, and then presented his argument on Jan. 24.
“Traditionally, I don’t think law schools had a whole lot of programs where people participated in real-world scenarios, but ASU has just tons of clinical opportunities and real-world opportunities,” Robertson said.
Jean Braucher, a professor at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law who signed on with the brief and wrote revisions, said it was a “fabulous” experience for Robertson, and that he did a good job representing it.
