Appellate Moot Court Board teams finish strong in energy and sustainability competition

Duquesne Law's Appellate Moot Court Board had an excellent showing at the National Energy and Sustainability Law Moot Court Competition at West Virginia University this weekend. After arguing on and off brief in four preliminary rounds, both Duquesne teams advanced to the round of 16, with one further advancing all the way to the final four.

After winning the octo-final and quarter-final rounds, the team of Vince LeDonne, Amy McCrossen, and Adam Duh advanced to the final four. The team ended the competition as semi-finalists after narrowly losing to a William and Mary team, which went on to win the competition.

The Duquesne Law team of Taylor Frey, Michele Mellick, and Maura Perri ended the competition as octo-finalists.

Congratulations to both teams as well as coaches David Frantz, L'15, and Katie Leonard, 3L, and Adjunct Professor Erin Karsman, who leads the appellate advocacy program.
