Regent's Moot Court Team at Elon University.

As Regent University School of Law leads students to become successful advocates, its Moot Court teams continue to excel in their competitions.

On March 28-29, Regent students competed in the fourth annual Billings, Exum & Frye National Moot Court Competition at Elon University. The team, consisting of Regent law students Tiffany Bennett, Chelsea Schlittenhart and Jaclyn Walliser, advanced in the rounds from 25 participating teams and into the semifinal round.

During the competition, Bennett, Schlittenhart and Walliser also won the Best Brief Award for Petitions' Brief. The team lost by one point during the semifinal rounds to the winning team from Southwestern Law School.

"I am very proud of these teams and how well they represented Regent," said Michael Hernandez, professor in the School of Law and coach for the Moot Court team. "The brief award reflects the outstanding quality of their work and also the strength of the writing instruction provided at Regent Law."

Regent was one of 16 law schools represented by the 25 participating teams in the national competition, finishing ahead of teams from the University of Virginia, the University of North Carolina, the College of William & Mary, Wake Forest University and George Mason University.

The law school's second competing team of students, consisting of Ashleigh Davenport, Rebecca Lawrence, and Elizabeth Libertini, finished in the quarterfinal rounds of the competition.
