ABA Moot Court: Regent rules!
I'll let our Associate Dean give you the news. Here's his e-mail about it; I've highlighted the names of our many winners.
Once again, I begin this email by praising God for his blessing. He gets the glory for our successes!I'd like to add a personal note of congratulations to Dannielle, who did an independent study with me; to Dean, with whom I worked on the Law Review; and to Liz, who was for a while my research assistant and pulled together an awful lot of early cases on parents and schooling!
Our students won the National Appellate Advocacy Competition this past weekend! The team of Dannielle Hall (3L), Dean Scharnhorst (3L), and Andrew Baugher (2L) defeated Seton Hall in the final round to become national champions. The team also received the Best Brief award. Andrew received the sixth place National Oralist award and Dannielle received the 8th place National Oralist award.
2Ls Trisha Festerling, Jonathan Shumate, and Seth Lowry also made an impressive showing at the tournament. The team came in 6th overall and advanced to the national quarter finals (top eight teams). Notably, they knocked out South Texas (So. Texas won the tourney last year). The team also won the 5th place Best Brief award.
These successes place both of our teams in the top 6 teams out of 152 competing in the tournament across the nation.
Last weekend we also had much success at the John J. Gibbons Tournament at Seton Hall. The team of Christy Murphy, Liz Munson, and Nathan Bruner advanced to the finals of the tournament. Liz and Christy received the 1st and 2nd best oralist awards based upon their performances in the preliminary rounds.
