After three rounds of oral argument at the National Appellate Advocacy Competition (NAAC) regional in Brooklyn, New York, this weekend, Marquette University Law School students Michael Crane (3L), and Samantha Evei (3L) were 2-1 and seeded thirteenth out of 33 teams. Crane and Evei advanced to the octofinals, but unfortunately lost a very close match to another team. Sam Berg (3L) was also a member of the team and wrote the team’s brief. Attorneys (and former NAAC competitors) Alyssa Dowse and Lindsey Greenawald coached the team.
Michael Beckman (3L) and Zachary Wittchow (3L) also competed in the Brooklyn regional, facing tough competition. Their team was coached by attorneys Jesse Blocher and Michael Cerjak. Professor Lisa Mazzie is the faculty advisor for both teams.
The NAAC is sponsored by the American Bar Association Law Student Division.
