USF Advocacy Teams Continued Success

June 16, 2010

USF Advanced Advocacy Competitions Program teams continued to earn top placements in moot court competitions this spring.

“It has been a record-breaking year for our advanced advocacy teams,” Director of Advocacy Programs Henry Brown and Advanced Advocacy Competitions Coordinator C. Brandi Hannagan said.

At the regional competition of the National Appellate Advocacy Competitions in Brooklyn, N.Y., Martha Saracino 3L earned seventh place for best advocate. Bryan Clifton 3L, Christopher Ulrich 3L, and Kendal Fletcher 2L placed third for best brief and advanced to the regional finals.

Kendrick Li 2L and Ben Anderson 3L placed fourth in State Bar of California’s Environmental Negotiations Competition and were one of only four teams to advance to the final round.

USF teams competing in the Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition and the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s Giles Sutherland Rich Moot Court Competition advanced to the quarterfinal rounds. The Roger J. Traynor California Appellate Moot Court Competition team earned third best brief.
