Student Leaders - RUDA Leadership Board 2018-2019

Kana Turley - RUDA President


Lexie Cross

Kana is a sophomore studying Political Communication. She joined RUDA in her freshman year, and had a truly rewarding experience; the team and coaches were fantastic, and the Moot Court competitions challenged her in ways she’d never been challenged before. Now, as President, Kana can’t wait for what this upcoming season will bring! She has no doubt that returning competitors and new members alike will fall in love with this welcoming community of people who are just as passionate about working hard as they are about having fun. If you enjoy intellectual debate and discussion -- with a hint of competition -- then RUDA is for you!

Kelly Fetterman - Secretary

Kelly FettermanKelly is a returning senior and a Government major. This will be her second year competing in Moot Court and she couldn't be more determined and excited for what this season has to offer! Kelly sudies government with a concentration in American Government and Politics, and hopes to continue her studies in law school. While she does want to be able to be a practicing lawyer, she also wants to be involved in politics. After participating in moot court for just one year, Kelly has seen all of the benefits that it has to offer. It has helped her build her public speaking skills, as well as teaching her how to build the best persuasive argument for a situation. Having to read and research cases so thoroughly has also been great preparation for going into the legal field of work. Kelly is very excited to have the opportunity to serve on the board this year!

Garrett Allred - Treasurer

Garrett AllredGarrett Allred is a senior at Regent. While he is studying psychology, he has shown great interest in competitive moot court and debate. Garret first joined the moot court team in the fall of 2016, and he quickly fell in love with mooting and the RUDA community. He is now excited to participate in his third year on the moot court team and to act as Treasurer on the RUDA Board.

Hannah Lillemo - Social Coordinator

Hannah LillemoHannah is a junior majoring in International Studies hoping to work overseas with humanitarian efforts. This is her second year participating in Moot Court, and it has been one of her most rewarding college experiences.  The other students and coaches have made the team a family, one that challenges and encourages each member to achieve more than he or she thought possible and have a bunch of laughs along the way.

Hannah is excited about this year's upcoming team, and would love for you to be a part of it!  If you have any questions about what it means to be a part of RUDA, feel free to email her at!

Matthew Ferri - Marketing Manager

Matthew Ferri

Matthew is a Junior-Senior studying Government with an emphasis on Pre-Law at Regent University. He maintains and facilitates all of the marketing needs on the RUDA board. The 2018-2019 academic year will be his second competing in Moot Court, and he is thrilled to be a member of the team. Matthew plans on attending law school and possibly seminary once he completes his degree at Regent. Matthew wishes to express that Moot Court is not an exclusive club for legally-minded students. Anyone pursuing a professional degree will benefit from the rigorous oral, writing, and critical thinking skills that are polished by competing, especially through the aid of challenging faculty advisers and coaches. Most importantly, being on the team cultivates an atmosphere among peers that will bring glory to God through intellectual pursuit.
