Moot Court Team Qualifies for National Finals
The team placed second in a regional competition, advancing them to nationals in Washington D.C.
Students on the Moot Court competition teams continue to bolster Pepperdine Law’s national reputation as a top law school for Moot Court. This weekend, second year law students Colten Stanberry, Richard Chagoury, and third year student Katherine Ellena were among the approximately 80 teams to compete in the Saul Lefkowitz Regional Moot Court Competition.
The competition, according to its website, “introduces law students to important issues arising in US trademark and unfair competition law. Students develop their brief writing and oral advocacy skills in a mock courtroom experience.”
The students argued about the potential confusion between a mark used by a craft brewery, Hollywood Hops, and a wine bar, Hollywood Vines, and finished in second place overall. This qualifies them to compete at the National Finals in Washington D.C. this March.
We could not be more proud of the hours of preparation and dedication our students give towards mastering the intricacies of the law and continuing the success of the Moot Court program.
