On March 24, Scalia Law School 2Ls, Gabriella Paez and Rita Regelbrugge, won the Arnold & Porter Government Contracts Moot Court Competition, defeating Amanda McDowell and Justin Baird from George Washington Law School. This was the first time in nearly ten years that the competition, hosted by GW Law School, welcomed student advocates from another law school.

The judges were Kyle Chadwick (Judge, Civilian Board of Contract Appeals), Timothy McIlmail (Judge, Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals), and Beverly Russell (Judge, Civilian Board of Contract Appeals).
