National Moot Court Success

Posted on February 12, 2004

In October, 2003, one hundred ninety teams began competing in fourteen regions in the 54th Annual National Moot Court Competition, co-sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. In December, twenty-eight teams received invitations to the national finals. By last Thursday night, only two teams remained to argue for the national championship.

Please join adjunct co-advisor Kristin Sankovitz and Prof. Brad Clary in congratulating third-year students Nathaniel Hobbs, Devon Mickelson, and Todd Sorensen on the winning of the Kathryn and Bernard Newman Bowl as the number two team in the nation. Nathaniel Hobbs received an American College of Trial Lawyers prize for being the second best advocate in the national championship oral argument.

This year marks the eleventh time in the last twenty-two years when a team from the U of M has been invited to the national finals.
