Congratulations to Boyd students Garrett Chase, Shane Jackson and Kory Koerperich on winning second place in the 24th Annual Duberstein Moot Court Competition held this past weekend at St. John’s University School of Law in New York. The competition promotes and recognizes the finest oral and written advocacy on issues in bankruptcy practice. With approximately 60 law school teams participating, it is the largest single site appellate moot court competition in the nation. 

The team earned the honor of traveling to New York to compete nationally after placing first at the second annual Judge Lloyd D. George Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition, the western region preliminaries for the national Duberstein Moot Court Competition. During the regional competition hosted by Boyd together with the Society of Advocates and the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), Garrett Chase also received the award for
Best Oral Advocate. 

Thanks go to ABI President and Armstrong Teasdale Partner Jim Shea,
for helping to organize the competitions; and special recognition goes to friend of the law school and competition namesake, The Honorable Lloyd D. George, for his ongoing support.
