ICAM team ties for first

Competitors from left: Amanda Finley, Alexis Leventhal, Donna-Marie Hayle, Ashlie Tarpley, Amy Levenberg and Josh Bachman.

The Levin College of Law International Commercial Arbitration Moot (ICAM) team tied for first place at the Florida Vis Premoot at the University of Miami Feb. 25, marking the second consecutive first-place finish in this competition.

Seven law schools, including UF, Stetson University, Florida Coastal School of Law, Nova Southeastern University, Florida International University, University of Miami and Loyola University New Orleans, argued against five of the other six schools.

The team’s captain, Donna-Marie Hayle, placed second in the individual oralist competition.

The team will travel to Vienna in late March to participate in the International Vis Moot Competition. Each year, approximately 250 teams from law schools throughout the world compete in Vienna. This year, UF’s first four moots will be against teams from the University of Bern, the University of San Andres, the University of Geneva and the University of Ljubljana. After the first four rounds, the competition is narrowed to the top 64 teams, who then compete to determine the winner of the moot. Last year, UF progressed to the round of 32 before losing to Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

The team is coached by Professors George Dawson and Jeffrey Harrison along with Florida alum Eddie Palmer (JD 85) of Miami. Numerous faculty assist in preparing the team including Professors Steve Powell, Danny Sokol, Jeffrey Davis and Larry DiMatteo.
