LAW students Adam Burton '17, Cassandra Payton '16, and Lucille Wall '17 were coached by LAW professor Bruce Cameron. In addition to taking home the second-place victory, Wall earned marks for Best Oralist in the competition.

This most recent victory contributed to Regent Law’s current status as 4th in the nation for best Moot Court program out of more than 200 law schools accredited by the American Bar Association by the University of Houston Law Center. This is currently the highest ranking in Regent LAW history.

Schools that finish within the top-16 rank for the 2015-2016 academic year are invited to compete in Houston’s national Moot Court championship in January 2017.

“I am very proud of Lucy, Adam, Cassie, and their coach, Professor Cameron. This is the third year in a row that we have competed and won significant awards at the Touro competition, which reflects the longstanding and ongoing commitment to excellence in our moot court program,” said Michael Hernandez, dean of the School of Law. “Our students and faculty have done a phenomenal job this year.”
