Regent Law Moot Court Team Remains in National Spotlight

Regent Law’s Moot Court team is ranked 9th in the nation, according to law professor and blogger Paul Caron at  TaxProf Blog,   a Law Professors Blog Network publication.  A blogger who crunches hard data from sources such as Princeton Review and other surveys, Caron, and his blog, have become regarded sources of information on law school statistics.

The Moot Court team’s multiple achievements  have not only garnered respect among analysts, but have also won it an invitation to the inaugural Moot Court National Championship, hosted by University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) in January.

UHLC’s Moot Court National Championship website lays out the method for choosing the competitors: “Each of the 16 finalists made it to the National Championship the old-fashioned way: they earned it by achieving outstanding results at ‘open’ moot court tournaments that any team can enter. Using a list of 34 open tournaments, the UHLC developed a qualifying formula.”

UHCL’s formula ranked Regent Law’s team at number 5 among the nation’s schools. The other competing schools are

Campbell University

Chicago-Kent College of Law

Depaul University

George Mason University

Harvard Law School

Loyola University – Chicago

Mercer University

Seton Hall University

South Texas College of Law

University of California – Davis

University of California – Hastings

University of Colorado

University of Detroit Mercy

University of Memphis

University of Miami

3L’s Tyler Weiss, Lindsey Powdrell, and Elizabeth Fabick will make up Regent’s Team, coached by Professor Steven Fitschen. Their brief is due December 1, 2008 and the oral arguments will be held in Houston January 7-10, 2009.
