UDM LAW SHINES AT NATIONAL MOOT COURT COMPETITIONS

The School of Law congratulates the Moot Court Board of Advocates, whose three teams placed high in national competitions over the weekend. The teams' briefs finished at or near the top of competitions in Washington, D.C. and Columbus, Ohio.

The National Veteran's Law Moot Court team of Jennifer Richards and Christopher Ferlito, coached by Professor Peggy Costello, won the award for Best Respondent Brief at the competition in Washington, D.C. They competed against twenty teams.

Samantha Boyd and Alexander Brown, coached by alumnus Sean Cowley '09, participated in the New York City Bar Association National Moot Court Competition. The team argued very well in Columbus and achieved a top 10 brief score.

The team of Emily Banks, Eva Janta, and Julia Abd-Elseed also competed in the New York City Bar Association National Moot Court Competition, receiving one of the highest brief scores in the tournament. Coached by alumni Javon Hindo '13 and Alanna P. O'Rourke '10, they advanced to the quarterfinals. The team was defeated by a margin of merely 1.5 points and narrowly missed the semifinal round.

The Moot Court Board of Advocates is a formally recognized student organization comprised of talented and energetic leaders with strong communication and organizational skills. The Board and its faculty advisors are responsible for the School's moot court program, which is designed to shape law students into persuasive communicators and advocates. The program offers students a practical educational experience through a specific advocacy course, multiple competitive opportunities, and faculty, practitioner, and student exhibitions.
