Regent Law Students Participate in Two Supreme Court Cases

Through the Right to Work Practicum at Regent University School of Law, Regent's law students have recently had the incredible opportunity to participate in two cases being heard by the United States Supreme Court.

Students participated in both Mulhall v. UNITE HERE, a major labor law case heard by the United States Supreme Court on November 13, and Harris v. Quinn, another important labor law case. The court will review both cases in 2014.

Under the guidance of Professor Bruce Cameron, a National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation litigator, and Reed Larson Professor of Labor Law at Regent University, law students provided research for the lead attorney in Mulhall v. UNITE HERE. Students also conducted research for Harris v. Quinn.

"Most attorneys never file a case that the U.S. Supreme Court will consider," said Cameron. "Few attorneys are involved in cases that the Supreme Court accepts for argument. Even fewer argue a case before the High Court. But Regent students are involved in two cases accepted for argument by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court."

The law school also held a moot court for Mulhall v. UNITE HERE. Third-year law student Jennifer Brown performed research for Mulhall this semester and also sat as a judge during the moot court.

"It's a rare experience to have researched cases that were used in the brief and to sit as a judge in the Moot Courtroom," Brown said. "I enjoyed digging for the one article or case that could be the changing factor in the argument."

Other moot court judges included third-year law student Chelsea Schlittenhart, Dean Emeritus Douglass Cook, Professor James Duane, Professor Bruce Cameron, Professor Kathleen McKee, and Professor Michael Hernandez.
