Moot Court Team Advances to National Competition

By Rachel Bender | November 20, 2012

Continuing a tradition of excellence among Regent University School of Law competition teams, the Moot Court Team recently won the Region IV competition of the National Moot Court Competition (NMCC) sponsored by the New York Bar Association. Held Nov. 16-17, at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Richmond, Va., the competition included 22 teams.

Regent's team of third-year law students Paul Bailey, Andrew Kartchner, and Jessica Pak also won the award for the best brief.

The NMCC is one of two moot court national championships. This year, 183 teams entered the competition, which encompasses 15 regions around the country. Other schools competing in Region IV included the University of West Virginia, University of Louisville, University of Richmond, the College of William & Mary, and Duke University.

Only 30 teams across the country—Regent among them—will advance to the national competition Jan. 28-31 in New York City.

"This is a very prominent victory that demonstrates that our students can compete with the best students at the top law schools in our region," said Professor Michael Hernandez, the faculty advisor for the Moot Court Team, which is part of Regent Law's Center for Advocacy. "Moot court is an invaluable aspect of legal education at Regent because it involves all of the skills necessary to succeed in the practice of law: analytical ability, legal research, writing and oral advocacy."
