Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law moot court teams continued their outstanding run in competitions at the recent Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition in New York City.

Stetson’s labor and employment law moot court team won the best brief award and advanced to the semifinals. More than 40 schools from across the country competed in this event, one of the largest of its kind.

The team consisted of students Mary Clapp, Chrysi Pejot and Ashley Gay. Stetson professor Jennifer Anglim coached the team.

“I would like to express my overwhelming pride in our moot court board this year,” said Stetson professor and moot court adviser Stephanie Vaughan. “We have won several best brief awards, several best oralist awards and placed in the top three overall teams in virtually every competition we’ve entered since June.”

After defeating Florida Coastal, Stetson defeated Loyola Chicago in the quarterfinal round and advanced to the semifinals before losing to Pepperdine.

In recent weeks, Stetson moot court teams placed near the top and won awards in the Judge Conrad B. Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition, the American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Competition and the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
