Law Team Wins Second Place in International Moot Court Competition
Third-year law students Monica Bailey, Alexis Fenell, Kevin Hoffman and Caleb Wan, coached by Professor Michael Hernandez, traveled to Oxford, England, to argue cases regarding the rule of law and international norms for freedom of expression. Regent's moot court team was one of 38 to present arguments in the final international round, competing against globally-recognized law schools such as the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.
"In recent years, our Regent Law students have earned much success at the regional and national levels, but it's especially gratifying and exciting to see them place so highly in our first international competition," said Regent Law dean Jeffrey Brauch. "I'm very proud of our moot court team and Coach Mike Hernandez. They all worked extremely hard to reach this prestigious competition, and they represented Regent very well. "
In the final round of arguments, Regent Law's team came out ahead over teams from Addis Ababa University, Ilia State University, Vilnius University, China University of Political Science and Law, Hugh Wooding Law School and Southwestern Law School.
The Price competition, which features regional rounds held in South Asia, South East Europe, the Americas and the Middle East, is known for its wide range of student competitors and notable guest judges from around the world. Regent Law was one of four schools from the United States in the international competition.
Previously, Regent finished second place overall in the Americas Regional Round held in New York City in January 2013. There, the team's legal brief was recognized as the competition's third best brief.
