During the weekend of February 27 – March 1, 2014, Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law participated in a regional round of the American Bar Association Law Student Division National Appellate Advocacy Competition, the largest moot court competition in the country. Fowler was represented by two teams: Team one included Jonathan Cayton (JD ’14), Dallis Warshaw (JD ’14) and Jaryn Saritzky (JD ’14); Team two included Andrew Mase (JD ’14), Stephanie Lincoln (JD ’14) and Amanda Herman (JD ’15). Fowler was the only school at the competition to get two teams into the final eight.
Our teams went into the semifinals as the 13th and 15th seeded teams but actually passed the second and fourth seeded teams, including the top advocate in the region. The team of Cayton, Warshaw and Saritzky won in the final round and will be moving on to the national finals in Chicago on April 10-12, 2014. Stephanie Lincoln of team two was recognized as the 8th best advocate in the region.
Team member Andrew Mase said, “The Las Vegas regional was a top-notch event put on by the ABA. The hosting of the event was very well done and the quality of the judges and competitors was second to none.”
