Moot Court team wins top seed, numerous awards

Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s Jessup International Law Moot Court team had a successful outing in the Regional Round of the competition in Chicago on Feb. 11-12.

The team consisting of Eric Connon, Jessica Joyce, Allie Mooney, Alex Lilly and Taylor Frank (pictured) won the Best Brief Award. In addition, Connon won the Best Speaker Award, while Mooney was the Eighth Best Speaker in the competition.

After the preliminary rounds, the team was the top seed of the 24 competing law schools, with a 4-0 record, having beat Northern Illinois, John Marshall (Chicago), Wayne State and Marquette. The team then defeated University of Iowa in the quarters before falling in a razor close round to Wayne State in a rematch during the semis.

The team is co-coached by brothers who are both alumni -- Chris McLaughlin, a lawyer at Jones Day, and Conor McLaughlin, a lawyer at Thompson Hine.
