Meet our Keynote Speaker

Meet our Judges

Phillips Exeter Academy faculty - all with extensive legal backgrounds -- will judge each round of competition. 

We also have the distinct privilege and pleasure of having Ms. Alvino McGill and her husband, Mr. Matthew McGill, judge at the tournament. Mr. McGill has won 15 out of 20 cases in front of the Supreme Court. He was also involved in Hollingsworth v Perry (2013), in addition to representing the prevailing party in wide-reaching rulings such as Citizens United v Federal Election Commission (2010), as well as successfully arguing that Senator John McCain was a ‘natural-born citizen’ and could run for the Presidency in 2008.
