Mason Team Wins Best Brief at National Moot Court Competition

The Mason Law moot court team of Kim Bierenbaum, Rocky King and Tony Schiavetti won the award for Best Brief this week at the 57th Annual National Moot Court Competition in New York City.

Bierenbaum, King and Schiavetti bested 27 other elite teams from around the country for top honors in the brief competition. Previous winners of the award include teams from Duke, Fordham, and Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.

The Mason team also advanced to the round of 16 in the oral event before being eliminated.

Coached by Ernie Isenstadt and Suzzette Rodriguez Hurley (JD '04), the students earned their trip to the national competition last November by finishing in the top two teams in its regional qualifying round.

The National Moot Court Competition is sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers and the New York City Bar Young Lawyers Committee.
