Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law’s moot court team won the 2007 National Tax Moot Court Competition Feb. 10 in St. Pete Beach.

This year’s team of Katie Cole and Tino Lisella remained undefeated throughout three days of competition. Sixteen teams from law schools around the country competed.

“This is the second year in a row that Stetson’s moot court team has won the National Tax Moot Court Competition,” said Professor Stephanie Vaughan, Stetson’s moot court advisor. “It is a remarkable achievement, and we are extremely proud.”

The team was coached by Professor Jennifer Murphy and Adjunct Professor Craig Behrenfeld.

A three-judge panel of U.S. Tax Court judges presided over the final rounds of competition, sponsored by the Florida Bar.
