“One of our teams, composed of third-year student Steve Mattingly and second-year Brian Stempien, were recognized for writing the Best Brief in the tournament. This was the second time in the last three years that one of our teams has won this award. Writing the best brief of the 21 teams in the competition positioned Steve and Brian to then win both of their preliminary rounds on Friday (beating teams from George Mason and William & Mary), and advance into the quarterfinal round on Saturday morning.
There, they defeated the defending regional champions from Campbell University, to advance to the semi-finals where they faced a team from Duke. In an extremely close and high-quality round, they were knocked out by a slim two-point margin. Overall, it was the most successful performance by any U of L team in the history of the competition.
We were also very well-represented by a team made up entirely of second-year students, Barry Dunn and Duffy Trager. They went 1-1 on Friday, including a win over a team from Wake Forest, and just missed out on a tie-breaker from advancing to the quarterfinals.
It was a great performance, and I was extremely proud of the way all four of them represented the law school.”
The Securities Law Moot Court team is still accepting applications for team membership. The deadline has been extended to Friday, November 14th. Contact Will Corrigan (email@example.com) or Adam Stotts (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
