    Brooklyn Law School Moot Court Honor Society students

    Brooklyn Law School Moot Court Honor Society continued to rack up major victories in recent national and international competitions, further fortifying its reputation as one of the most distinguished and accomplished moot court programs in the nation.

    These victories come as the Moot Court Honor Society hosts the 30th Annual Jerome Prince Memorial Evidence Competition, March 26-28. This year 36 law school teams from across the country will take part in the competition named in honor of the late BLS Dean and renowned evidence scholar Jerome Prince.

    Recent Moot Court Honor Society wins include the Florida State University College of Law National Mock Trial Competition, where BLS now has won two of the three years since the competition’s inception. Anthony Beneduce ’16, Ryan Levy ’15, Jessica Soricelli ’16, and Adam Yefet ’16 were named champions. Ryan Levy ’15 was named Best Overall Advocate. They were coached by John Garcia ’15.

    Another BLS team took first place in the Robert F. Wagner National Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition, the nation’s largest student-run moot court competition and the premier national competition dedicated exclusively to labor and employment law. Arielle Kobetz ’15 and Glenn Radecki ’17 were named champions, and their coaches were Jessica Apter ’15, Elizabeth Conroy ’15, and Evan Esswein ’15.

    In the International Criminal Court Moot Competition Regional Round for the Americas and Caribbean, which brings together disparate legal traditions in a simulated case before the International Criminal Court, Bradford Bray ’16, Caitrin Coccoma ’16, and Lillian Smith ’16 earned a third-place finish. This advances the team to the international round to be held at The Hague in the Netherlands in May. This is the second consecutive year that Brooklyn Law School's ICC team advanced to the international round. Bray also was awarded Best Prosecution Brief. Their coaches were Ian Dooley ’15 and Amanda Shapiro ’15.
