Mason Moot Court Completes "Hat Trick" with Win in Albany

The Mason Law Moot Court Board claimed its third major victory in as many weeks as members Melanie Fett, Andrea Loveless, and Pete Whelan took first place in the 19th Annual Domenick L. Gabrielli Family Law National Moot Court Competition held at Albany Law School.

The team of 3Ls argued six times in the course of the three-day competition and defeated a team from George Washington University Law School to win first place. In all, 18 teams participated in the national contest established in 1989 in honor of the late Domenick L. Gabrielli, Associate Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals.

The win in Albany comes on the heels of Mason victories at the 17th Annual National First Amendment Moot Court Competition and the 57th Annual National Moot Court Competition in New York City.
