Marquette hosted the Region VIII round of the 66th Annual National Moot Court Competition (NMCC) this weekend, which included fourteen participating teams.
I was pleased to work with two strong, dedicated teams. Larissa Dallman, Jeremy Klang, and Chal Little advanced the quarterfinal round. Attorneys Emily Lonergan, Jason Luczak, and Max Stephenson coached the team. Alexandra Don, Christopher Guthrie, and Lauren Maddente also competed and were coached by Attorneys Sue Barranco, Jesse Blocher, and Mike Cerjak. Both teams put in many hours preparing for competition.
The NMCC is sponsored by the New York City Bar and the American College of Trial Lawyers. Over 180 law schools compete across the country. I am grateful for the time donated by the Marquette Moot Court Association, and in particular, Alex Ackerman, who chaired this event. Numerous judges and attorneys from around the state (and even from around the country) took their weekend time to travel to Marquette to judge the oral arguments, or earlier, to grade briefs. We rely each year on their dedication to this event, and we truly appreciate their help.
