Moot Court Team Finishes Top 5, Wins Best Oral Advocate Award

Regent Law’s team of Anastasias Kamoutsas, Carmen Cabrero, and Samuel Moultrie finished fifth out of 33 teams at the annual Billings, Exum & Frye Moot Court Competition held at Elon University School of Law, March 30-31, 2012.

Carmen Cabrero won the Best Oral Advocate award for the competition’s preliminary rounds.

Regent Law’s team went undefeated in preliminary rounds and advanced to the round of 8, losing by one point to the eventual competition champions from George Mason.

According to team coach Professor Kathleen McKee, Regent’s teams performed with both legal excellence and professional integrity

“As our teams progressed through the rounds, the judges not only complimented them on their preparation but also on their courtroom demeanor,” she said. “They represented Regent well by arguing with both professionalism and civility.”

Elon’s annual competition draws dozens of competitors from law schools nationwide. Teams from Duke, George Mason, UNC Chapel Hill, University of Virginia, Vanderbilt, and South Texas among others attended this year’s event.
