Stetson University College of Law students won the 28th Annual John Marshall Law School International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law in Chicago Oct. 1-3. Thirty-two teams competed, including five from overseas.

The Stetson Law team of J’Aimee Crockett, Aisha Sanchez, and Ryan Schmidt beat a team from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law in the final round.

“Our students accomplished an incredible feat in oral advocacy,” said Moot Court Advisor and Professor Stephanie Vaughan. “They prepared extremely hard and were honored to compete against such talented students from around the globe.”Professor Brooke Bowman, who dedicates many hours to helping prepare Stetson Law students for competitions, coached the winning team to victory.

Established in 1981, the Moot Court Competition in Information Technology  & Privacy Law has grown into one of the largest and most prestigious international moot courts, bringing together law school students from across the country and around the world to brief and argue unresolved issues of technology law. The competition is hosted by the Center for Information Technology & Privacy Law at John Marshall Law School.

Stetson’s Moot Court Board is composed of a select group of students who compete in interscholastic moot court competitions throughout the United States and around the world.
