Courtrooms indeed inspire awe

November 21, 2009

I enjoyed [Mickey Maurer’s Nov. 17] column. As an undergraduate student at IUPUI, working full-time and going to school full-time, I visited the moot court room at the old law school building on New York Street from time to time for inspiration and to remind myself of the goal. Walking into that room brought about a feeling of exhilaration; a sense of awe for the power of the intellectual battles that (hopefully) result in achievement of justice in such arenas.

Although I have now entered such rooms hundreds of times, it is never an ordinary experience. As I tell my clients: It is the one place in America where the playing field is actually supposed to be level for everyone.
