Regent Law’s Moot Court team of Tristen Cramer, Amy Vitale, and Megan Donley recently advanced to the quarterfinals of the National Moot Court Competition (NMCC) held Jan. 30 through Feb. 2 in New York City, finishing among the top 8 teams out of a field of 191.
According to team coach Professor Mike Hernandez, "The NMCC is one of two true national championships for moot court," Hernandez said. "The other moot court national championship is sponsored by the American Bar Association, and we won that national title in 2006. Tristen, Amy and Megan did a phenomenal job.”
Regent’s team advanced past teams from the University of Virginia, Duke University, the University of Kentucky, Campbell University and Charlotte School of Law at the regional competition to make the national round.
Tristen Cramer won the award for the best oralist in the final round at the regional competition and Regent's team produced the second best brief there as well.
The NMCC is sponsored by the New York City Bar Association and the American College of Trial Lawyers and is now in its 62nd year.
