Regent Boasts Moot Court Success
By Brett Wilson | April 16, 2014
Spring 2014 continues to be a successful semester for Regent University School of Law students participating in regional and national Moot Court Competitions.
On Friday, April 11, Regent Law students Sarah Decker, Kellisia Hazlewood, and Abbie Nordhagen finished second place, and claimed the second-best brief in the Touro Law Center's National Moot Court Competition in Law & Religion at the Alfonse D'Amato Federal Courthouse, in Islip, New York.
Regent's team, led by assistant professor Tessa Dysart and third-year law student Elise Girani, followed closely behind the competition's champions, Emory University.
Not only did competing students work well as a team, they also performed well individually. Hazlewood won best oralist for her argument. Nordhagen won second-best oralist in the competition.
"I am really proud of our team. Abbie, Kelli, and Sarah put an incredible amount of time into preparing for the competition, and Elise provided invaluable help as the assistant coach," said Dysart. "Their hard work clearly paid off and we are looking forward to hopefully returning to the Touro competition next year."
