Fordham Law School students claimed Best Brief, Best Speaker, and Finalist prizes at the regional round of the Jessup International Law Moot Court competition.

Blanka Lewkowicz '07 earned the Best Speaker prize.  The team earning Best Brief consisted of Lewkowicz, Brian Schmidt '07, Sogol Somekh '07, and Lauren Plackter '07, who also received honors as Fifth Best Speaker.

The brief will be eligible for an international brief prize, which will be awarded in April at the Jessup competition's international rounds.
