“We are thrilled that our students excelled in this prestigious international competition,” said Professor Bowman. “Stetson prides itself in preparing students with the practical skills that they need to practice law, and these competitions allow them to hone and showcase their skills.”

The Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law was established in 1981. Students from law schools across the country and outside the U.S. compete each year to brief and argue unresolved issues of technology law. State appellate judges and supreme court justices, federal district judges, law professors and legal practitioners critique and score the competition, hosted by the Center for Information Technology & Privacy Law at John Marshall Law School.
