End of the line

Saturday was off to a great start when Jamie, Cameron, and I were able to cab to our palazzo (where our International Court of Justice was meeting), rather than taking the 20 minute trek through the vibrant Genoa streets. After arriving at the ICJ building, we took a group picture and chatted anxiously with other advocates and judges as we waited to hear the verdict of Jamie's and my case, Uganda vs. the DRC. After months of preparation, tension filled the room as the Co-President of the ICJ stepped up to the podium to deliver the verdict....Jamie and I, advocates for Uganda, had won! Later that day, at closing ceremonies, Bullis continued to win, as Cameron was voted "best judge." All in all, it was an exciting and fun-filled ending to an amazing trip! - Alexa Adler
