Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law moot court teams had two strong finishes and won top awards in recent competitions.

The Bankruptcy Moot Court team placed third and received awards for the best brief and best oral advocate runner-up at the 12th Annual Judge Conrad B. Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition at St. John’s University College of Law in Queens New York, the only competition of its kind in the country.

Stetson’s team consisted of Leslie Case, Sabine Neumann and Eric Page, who received the oral advocate honor.

“They represented Stetson well, and we should be very proud of their success,” said Stetson Professor Theresa Radwan, who coached the team.

Stetson’s Civil Rights Moot Court team placed second in the National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition in Minneapolis, sponsored by the University of Minnesota Law School.

Stetson’s team of Christine Jalbert and Koinonia Martin Givens went undefeated for six rounds of arguments to advance to the final round, where they were defeated by a team from Brigham Young University. The competition drew teams from 39 schools from across the country.

“We now have the reputation as being the team to beat,” said Stetson Professor Ann Piccard.
