Alfred Murray II

For Alfred Murray II (JD '08), becoming the moot court chief justice was a natural progression. A member of the winning team from the 2007 National Black Law Students Association Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition, out-going vice president of BLSA, member of the Student Bar Association Diversity Affairs Committee, and distinguished student, Murray makes conscientious decisions now about the work he wants to do in the future.

As chief justice of the moot court for the academic year 2007-2008, Murray acted as the "face and voice" of the program, for its day-to-day operation, and for working with the executive board to manage the teams.

"I bring experiences to the moot court that is outside of the traditional law student. I am accustomed to working with various groups of people to accomplish common goals." Originally from the East Bay area of California, Murray earned a BA in political science from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, where he had a double minor in philosophy and African-American history.
