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."
