Moot Court Board Hosts Its Sixth Undergraduate Competition

Regent University School of Law hosted its sixth undergraduate moot court competition sponsored by the American Collegiate Moot Court Association (ACMA) on November 12-13, 2010.

This year’s competition involved two issues surrounding the Commerce Clause and Fourteenth Amendment. Sixteen teams made up of two competitors each, from various undergraduate institutions, gave oral arguments over the two-day period. In the final round, two teams faced a panel of nine judges, and a 5-4 decision determined the winning argument, which was delivered by competitors from Patrick Henry College.

The competition concluded with a banquet on the second-floor balcony of the library, where Sarah Schulte, admissions counselor for Regent Law, addressed students about recent exciting events occurring at Regent, including the launching of the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law. In a time where 27 million people live in slavery around the world, Ms. Schulte highlighted Regent’s commitment to making a difference by training law students and providing legal support to international efforts to put an end to slavery.

The banquet concluded with awards being handed to winning teams and the best oralists. Congratulations to all of the competitors and thank you to all of the guest judges!
