Regent Hosts Annual Regional Moot Court Tournament

On Nov. 4-5, Regent Law's Moot Court Board had the pleasure of hosting the Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament of the American Moot Court Association's annual undergraduate competition.

Students in the Regent University Debate Association (RUDA) from the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) registered five teams, two of which earned third and fourth place in the regional competition. Three students, Alexandria Cross, Ronald Pantalena, and Christopher Mateer, received top-10 speaker awards.

Competitors came to the annual tournament at Regent from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, the University of Virginia, George Washington University, James Madison University, Bridgewater College, Patrick Henry College, and Liberty University. Judges determined speaker awards based on knowledge of case facts, legal reasoning, and the manner in which contestants presented themselves while facing pressure from judges. Points were awarded in these categories and then aggregated.

Daniel Rouleau, this year's competition director, ensured everything ran smoothly for
the 36 teams who participated from across the United States.

Exceptional talent from Liberty University and Patrick Henry College graced the final round with Patrick Henry ultimately taking home first place.
