Congratulations to the ABA Mock Arbitration Team!

Congratulations to the ABA Mock Arbitration team, who were semi-finalists in the regional competition in DePaul November 15-16! Team members Nicole Hall, Orla Powderly, Joseph Valenti, and Krystal Wascher were coached by Sarah Andrews (L'06) and Christopher Borsani (L07). Because of the team's success and high scoring, they have been invited to the national competition in San Antonio in January. Any alumnus who is interested in being a guest arbitrator to assist the team in their practices should contact Professor Al Pelaez, faculty advisor.
