As regional champs, Tom and Amy will represent Moritz at the ABA's National Representation in Mediation Competition during the 10th Annual ABA Section of Dispute Resolution Spring Conference. The meeting and competition are in Seattle from April 3-5. Oakley, of San Francisco, is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy. Tulk, of West Chester, Pa., received her bachelorís degree from The Ohio State University.
The team of 3Ls Avonte Campinha-Bacote and CJ Willey were runners-up in Moritz's intra-school mediation competition and continued their strong showing at the regional competition. 3Ls Michelle Mann and Geoffrey Kudlo performed well after spending just a week preparing. Mann and Kudlo joined the competition late to replace another schoolís team that had dropped out.
