Moot Court Team Wins Regional Championship

December 10, 2009

Moot Court Team members Catherine M. Parnell '10 and Anthony R. Perri '10 captured the regional championship at the New York City Bar Association's Moot Court Competition. Perri also earned the
 Anthony Perri '10, Heather Shea '10, Professor Maria Marcus, and Catherine Parnell.
Best Speaker award while Parnell took home Runner-Up Best Speaker.

"Perri and Parnell's performance was so extraordinary that it could serve as a model for how oral argument should be presented," said Maria L. Marcus, coach to Fordham's inter-school moot court program.

The Fordham team defeated NYU, among other schools, on their way to victory. The captain of the team was Heather Shea '10.  In February, the team will compete in the national rounds, where they will face off against the winners of the thirteen other regions.
