Building on moot court and mock trial successes previously reported by The Cardinal Lawyer, University of Louisville teams enjoyed fantastic success this past weekend at the National Moot Court regional competition. Herewith a report from Professor Sam Marcosson, who has coached this team for a dozen years:
Two University of Louisville teams enjoyed terrific success at the regional competition of the National Moot Court Competition November 16-17 in Richmond, Va. A team made up of third-year students Robyn Lurding and Claire Parsons, and a team comprised of third-year Jeff Nicoson and second-year Steve Mattingly, both compiled undefeated records in the Friday preliminary rounds to advance to the Saturday quarter-finals. Along the way, they knocked off teams from UNC, George Mason, William & Mary, and Kentucky. Only six teams of the 20 in the field made it through to the quarters, and U of L had two of them. Congratulations to the two teams for their tremendous performances, both in the prelims and in two close quarter-finals against outstanding teams from Duke. I could not have been any prouder of them; they were truly brilliant and they represented the school wonderfully.
