Dispute Resolution Board is 3 for 3 in advancing to national competitions
With a win Feb. 7-8, 2020, at the ABA Client Counseling regional competition at the University of Louisville- Louis D. Brandeis School of Law in Louisville, Ky., Stetson Law’s Dispute Resolution Board is now “three for three,” having advanced to national rounds in all three areas in which the ABA Law Student Division hosts competitions: negotiation, arbitration, and client counseling.
DR/Trial Team veteran Forest Sutton and rookie Gabriele Bodanza (who was competing for the very first time this past weekend) won their regional competition in Louisville and will advance to national rounds in mid-March.
Other Stetson students who participated in the competition included:
- Andrea Snipes-Booker and Bailey Peterson made it to the finals and placed third overall; and
- Alina Acevedo and Jacqueline Phillips, both second-year students who performed expertly in their first-ever competition on behalf of Stetson.
Kaile Bennett and Jerry Funt won the ABA Negotiation regional competition in November in Utah and advanced to the national competition at the ABA headquarters in Chicago in early February.
Ryan Dwyer, Grace Kobitter, and Kyle McCabe, together with 2L DR/Moot Court member Mia Tolliver (who was competing for the first time for Stetson) won the regional competition in November and were one of only 10 teams to advance to the national competition in Chicago in January.
Negotiation and client counseling coaches were Professor Jim Sheehan and Stetson alumna Emily VanOosting J.D. ‘12.
