Pepperdine Caruso Law Teams Compete in Hockey Arbitration Competition of Canada
Two Pepperdine Caruso Law teams of third-year students Niko Tsiouvaras and Stolle Voight, and Emilie MacLean and Tatum Lowe, competed in the Hockey Arbitration Competition of Canada (HACC) hosted by the University of Toronto School of Law, Toronto, Canada. The competition simulates the salary arbitration proceedings used in the National Hockey League. Both teams advanced to the quarter-finals winning two out of the three contests.
The Caruso Law teams acted as advocates, wrote briefs and presented their respective cases on behalf of players and clubs for three arbitration-eligible National Hockey League players in simulated hearings before National Hockey League industry professionals, lawyers, agents, and arbitrators. The students were commended for their professionalism, substantive preparation and oral advocacy and presentation skills. Professor Weston was privileged to see the teams in action and noted their impressive advocacy skills.
