School of Law Continues to Progress in Moot Court Competitions

There are many marks of a great lawyer. Apart from oral arguments, legal writing is key. Regent University School of Law students proved their merit at the Price Media Moot Court Competition in Oxford, England, Wednesday March 30-April, 2.

The team – Christy Hurst, Palmer Hurst and Sandra Alcaide, coached by LAW professor Jeffrey Brauch – took home the Second-Best Memorial in the World at the international competition.

Additionally, two Regent teams traveled to the Billings, Exum & Frye Competition at Elon School of Law in Greensboro, North Carolina. The first team, including law students Brittany Jones, Daniel Rouleau, and Joshua Gamboa, earned Best Respondent Brief award and overall Best Brief in the competition of 40 teams.

The second team consisting of law students, William Thetford, Lindsey Gilman, and Sam Walsh earned the Best Petitioner Brief award.

“This performance validates that our legal writing and skills training is second to none, in the U.S. and around the world,” said Michael Hernandez, LAW dean. “We prepare our students not just to be moot court champions, but to be highly skilled, principled, and ethical advocates who will serve clients with excellence and better the world around them. I am very proud of our students and their accomplishments!”

According to the University of Houston Law Center annual Moot Court Program rankings, Regent’s Moot Court Program currently stands as seventh-best out of all American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law schools. This places Regent's Moot Court ranking above other universities such as Georgetown University Law School, Texas A & M School of Law, William and Mary University Law School and Yale Law School.

Regent’s competition season will continued Thursday, April 7 as law students entered the Touro Competition at the Touro Law Center in Central Islip, New York.
