ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition

Duquesne Law School's Appellate Moot Court Board had a tremendous showing at this year's ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition - D.C. Regional.

Duquesne's team of Cara Brack (2L), Emily Peffer (2L), and Hannah French (2L) made it all the way to the final round where they lost in a split decision, emerging as Regional Finalists. In addition, Cara received an award for being the 10th Best Oralist out of over sixty advocates.

Duquesne's team of Jacob Hanley (3L), Chris Winkler (3L), and Sam Nolan (4E) were Regional Semi-finalists, after four rounds of competition. Additionally, Jacob, Chris, and Sam received the First Place Best Brief out of thirty-two teams. Adj. Prof. Erin Karsman, who directs the appellate advocacy program, coached both teams.

Congratulations to our students on these outstanding achievements.
