Stetson sent two teams to the regional competition.

The Stetson student team of Shaun Cummings, Chad Florin, Cayelan Loucks and Christina Vicari  won second place in the final round against the winning Stetson team.

“This victory reinforces Stetson’s commitment to being the best law school in advocacy in the country,” said Professor Lee Coppock, who coached the Stetson teams. “Both of our student teams were exceptionally prepared and swept the competition.”
