Spotlight On

Moot Court Competition

Moot Court Team 

Pictured is the 2010-11 Syracuse Jessup Team: Coach & Professor Lucille Rignanese L’99, Ben Snyder L’12, Michael Kaplan L’11, Jason Hirata L’12, Mikala Steenholdt L’12, Nina Hong L’11, and Meghan Gilligan L’12.

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 500 law schools in more than 80 countries.

This year, the College of Law team won all four of its preliminary rounds and advanced to the quarterfinals, ranked in 5th place, above Brooklyn Law School, NYU, and Yale, and just below Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell. The team lost in a hotly contested match to Columbia, who went on to win the regional competition.

The team's written submissions won an award in the category of Best Memorial. Out of the nearly 100 oralists in the competition, Nina Hong won the top oralist award, and Michael Kaplan was ranked 5th.
