A team of four Stetson University College of Law students competed with students from 75 law schools in 20 countries to win the Best Respondent’s Memorandum Award at a moot court competition in Hong Kong.
Students Sarah Cohen, Sandra Harrell, Anna Liu, and Luis Santos won the award at the 2010 Willem C. Vis East International Commercial Arbitration Moot on March 21.
Santos, a third-year student, also received an Honorable Mention Best Oralist Award for his outstanding performance in the preliminary rounds.
The first Vis Moot began 17 years ago in Vienna, Austria, to promote international commercial arbitration. The Vis East Moot Competition began seven years ago to encourage participation from more schools around the globe. Another team of Stetson students will compete in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, Austria, starting this weekend.
Stetson Law graduate Thomas Yaegers, a member of Stetson’s 2005 world champion Vis team, coached the team along with professors Joseph Morrissey, Stephanie Vaughan, Marco Jimenez and Robert Batey, and student coach Erik Detlefsen.
