  • Stephen George Cobb

    I was scared, but didn't dare show it. After all, this was the end of the first year in law school, and the Moot Court Team was on the line. Sixteen spots, almost a hundred competitors. One judge is intimidating. Three is stress central. You see, the first time I met John, he was my judge. John Jarvis is a fellow graduate of Florida State University's College of Law and was one year ahead of me. I have always respected John since the first day I met him the hard way - asking pointed questions about important aspects of the law. He retains his sense of humor, yet is drop dead serious when you need him to be. And I respect his opinion and experience now, just as I did when I first met him in law school as my judge.
