Moot Court Board Continues to Place Strong in National Competitions

After hosting the National Constitutional Law Competition at home, Regent Law’s Moot Court Board barely had time to catch their collective breath before sending teams on the road to other competitions where they performed solidly.
 
Of the 21 teams that competed, Regent Law 2Ls Annalise Lang, Jonathan Young and Jamie Barton (pictured) received third place overall in the William B. Spong, Jr. Invitational Tournament hosted by William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Va., February 18 – 19.  Jonathan Young also received top individual honors as Best Oralist at the competition.

Additionally, two Regent Law teams travelled to Brooklyn, N.Y. for the American Bar Association’s (ABA’s) regional National Appellate Advocacy Competition this past weekend.  3L Daniel Hebda, 2L Tristen Cramer and 2L Megan Herwald advanced to the final qualifying round, while 3L Kawika Vellalos and 2Ls Ruth Maron and Brian Bailey advanced to the semi-finals. Of the 39 teams that competed, four will advance to the national rounds in Chicago in April.

Individual Regent Law students also proved their exceptional skill as oral advocates at the ABA competition in Brooklyn.  Tristen Cramer tied for 5th place oralist, and Kawika Vellalos tied for 10th place oralist out of 117 competitors.

Regent Law Moot Court Board will wrap up their 2010-11 competition season the first weekend in April, sending two teams to the Billings, Exum & Frye National Moot Court Competition at Elon University School of Law.
