Moot Court Board Congratulates the Members of the Arbitration Team!

The University of Louisville Brandeis Law School ABA Arbitration Team competed last week.  We congratulate the team, Kseniya Buck, Andrew Daley, Chris Groeschen, and Dale Hardy, on their excellent performance.  The team killed the first round, earning the votes of all three judges and the highest score of all twenty teams.  In the second round, the team earned the vote of one judge, and overall, they placed in the top half of the competing teams.  One judge recorded that Kseniya asked clear, open-ended questions, at a good pace to her well-prepared witness on direct examinations.  Kseniya was complimented on her great points on cross-examination and “her excellent use of an exhibit” during summation.  Chris and Andrew were complimented on their “excellent preparation of witnesses” and their “outstanding” attorney witness interaction.  Dale, the team’s sole returning member, earned amazing scores on every aspect of his presentation, with no score from any judge lower than a 9 on a scale were 8 is excellent and 10 is superior.  

We also congratulate the team’s primary coach, Lily Chan Patteson, who spent many hours working and traveling with the team’s members, enabling them to perform so well.  We also thank Brad Johnson, Greg Mayes, Phil Longmeyer, and Thomas Patteson for their help coaching and the following folds for volunteering as mock arbitrators: Brian Cook, Mary Jo Gleason, Emily Harris, Jamie Izlar, Mike Lawrence, Derek Miles, Jennifer Murzyn, Danielle Reesor, Robert Shelton, Rebecca Simms, Steve Smith, Dennis stilger, Nathan Williams.  Without all this consistent support year after ear, the team could not have learned as much or done as well.
