National Moot Court Team

Two teams of students will be traveling to Richmond, Virginia November 18 through November 22 to compete in the National Moot Court regional competition. Joshua Bussen (’16), Elizabeth Ruocco (’16), and Mackenzie Salenger (’16) make up one team and are led by coach Professor Charlie Rose. Lauren Emery (’16), Woody Angle (’16), and Kaitlin Price (’16) make up the other team and are led by coach Professor John Korzen.

The National Moot Court Competition is an annual inter-law school event co-sponsored by New York City Bar Association’s National Moot Court Competition Committee and the American College of Trial Lawyers.  Since 1950, the competition has promoted the appellate advocacy arts of intellectual rigor, legal research, and persuasive argument.  This historic competition allows student advocates to hone their appellate advocacy skills before prominent members of the legal profession.  Every year, over 120 law schools compete in regional rounds throughout the United States, with winners advancing to final rounds in New York City.

Best of luck to our two outstanding National Moot Court teams!
