For the seventh time in 10 years, Case Western Reserve University’s Jessup International Law Moot Court Team emerged victorious in the regionals in Chicago, earning a berth in the International rounds April 5-12 in Washington, DC.

After defeating Notre Dame, DePaul, Northern Illinois, and Northwestern in the preliminary rounds, the team earned the high seed for the elimination rounds. The team went on to beat Marquette in the Quarters, and Ohio Northern in the Semis, then lost a close round to Wayne State in the Finals (both Finals teams progress to the International Rounds).

The team also won the Second Best Brief Award and Steven Perrott won the award for best overall oralist in the competition.

The team includes Tyler Kimberly, Betsy Krupar, Noah Goldberg, Stephen Perrott and Eric Connon, and their coach, alum Conor McLaughlin of Thompson Hine.

Our team won the Jessup World Championship in 2008 (the last U.S. team to do so) and won the award for the Best Brief in the World in 2011.
