Moot court teams bring home national championships from weekend competitions

March 23, 2016 | Students

Two moot court teams from the Moritz College of Law brought home national championships last weekend from the Child Welfare and Adoption Law and Ruby R. Vale Corporate Law Moot Court Competitions.

2Ls Sara Coulter and Audry Klossner claimed the top spot at the 26-team Child Welfare and Adoption Law Competition held at the Ohio Supreme Court. They also wrote a top-ten brief, and Klossner took home the award for Best Oralist in the final rounds of the competition. 2L Karin Nordstrom was also named Best Oralist in the preliminary rounds.

Meanwhile, at the Ruby R. Vale Corporate Law Moot Court Competition, 3Ls Susan Restrepo and Pat Schlembach advanced to the final round where they were named national champions in an unanimous decision. Restrepo also won the award for Best Oralist. The two had the opportunity to argue in front of a sitting Delaware Supreme Court justice, a recently retired Delaware Supreme Court justice, and a sitting vice chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery (the premier corporate law trial court in the country).
