Congratulations to Animal Law Moot Court Team

The Moot Court Board is proud to announce that the Animal Law Moot Court team, comprised of Lauren Bean and Rexéna Napier, was a semi-finalist in the 2010 Animal Law Competition at Harvard Law School last weekend.  After making it to the final four and competing in a "virtually undecidable" round, Lauren and Rexéna were defeated by eventual champion Florida Coastal.

Lauren was commended for her poise and organization, while Rexéna received praise for her complete grasp of the material and ability to respond to questions succintly.

Ebert Haegele also traveled to Harvard and competed in the Closing Argument Competition.
Ebert was given high praises about his convincing tone and professionalism in the courtroom, which he showcased despite his being ill. Congratulations to all on a job well done and much appreciation to all who assisted in their preparation!

The team was coached by Professor John Cross.  The team wishes to thank Professors Ariana Levinson and Sam Marcosson, Adjunct Professor Thomas FitzGerald, the Honorable Patricia FitzGerald of the Jefferson County Family Court, and fellow students, Algeria Ford and Duffy Trager for their assistance in preparing for the competition.
