Louisville Law National Moot Court Teams Shine at Regional Competition
Two University of Louisville teams achieved success at the
National Moot Court Regional Competition, November
16-17 in Richmond, Va. One team, made up of third-year students Robyn
Lurding and Claire Parsons, and a second team with third-year Jeff
Nicoson and second-year Steve Mattingly, both had undefeated
records in the Friday preliminary rounds and advanced the Saturday
quarter-finals. Along the way, they knocked off teams from UNC, George
Mason, William & Mary, and Kentucky. Only six of the 20 teams made it through to the quarters, and U of L had two of them.
National Moot Court faculty advisor Professor Sam Marcosson shared his pride in the teams, "I could not have been any prouder of them; they were truly brilliant and they represented the school wonderfully. Congratulations to the two teams for their tremendous performances, both in the prelims and in two close quarter-finals against outstanding teams from Duke."
