Moot Court fro Law and Economics For the second straight year, a University of Florida Levin College of Law team placed first overall in the Henry G. Manne Moot Court Competition for Law and Economics sponsored by the George Mason University School of Law in Washington, D.C.

The team of Eric Nowak (pictured left), Tim Haughee (pictured second from left), Lorna Cobb (pictured second from right), and Jeffrey Hurcomb (pictured right), took first place, defeating the University of Virginia in an exciting final round Feb. 16. A second team from UF Law consisting of David Rottman, Meredith Barrios, and Dana Israel, also had a strong showing at the competition.

The competition required teams to analyze an antitrust lawsuit brought by the government against two merging premium, natural and organic grocery stores. In preparation for the competition, the teams wrote an appellate brief and spent many hours practicing their oral arguments. The winning team was coached by Tim Haughee (pictured second from left) and had assistance from Professors William Page, Jeffrey Harrison, Michael Siebecker, Leanne Pflaum, and Henry Wihnyk.

One of the foremost national moot court teams, the Justice Campbell Thornal Moot Court Team competes each year in appellate advocacy contests throughout the country. The team was founded in 1961, and was named after the prominent Florida Supreme Court chief justice. The team’s mission is to promote excellence in appellate advocacy. Comprised of students from UF Law, the team has received numerous state and national awards. New members are selected each year from all third semester students who try out for the team. An informational session for interested new members will be held later this semester.

Upcoming competitions include the American Bar Association Law Student Division National Appellate Advocacy Competition to be held in Dallas Texas Feb. 27–March 2 and the St. Johns/Duberstein Bankruptcy Competition to be held in New York City March 8-10.
