Chapman Law Competition Students Finish in Top Three at International Mediation Tournament in Glasgow, Scotland
April 26, 2017
Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law’s competition teams finished the academic year this month with an impressive showing at the annual International Law School Mediation Tournament in Glasgow, Scotland.
Two teams of Fowler School of Law students – Weston O’Connor (JD ’17), Spencer Shain (JD ’18), Sasha Ostrovsky (JD ’18), Jeff Farano (JD ’17), Amanda Thyden (JD ’17), and Michelle Rivers (JD ’17) – competed against 42 teams from across the globe. Chapman was the only school to advance two teams to the final round and to have a team in the final round in both mediation and advocacy roles.
The team comprised of Farano, Thyden, and Rivers finished the competition second in advocacy and third in mediation. O’Connor and Ostrovsky took second place individual honors in advocacy, and Thyden received second place individual honors in mediation.
The results were an impressive showing for our students, who competed not only against international teams but also teams from American schools including American University Washington College of Law, Hastings College of the Law, South Texas College of Law – Houston, Tulane University Law School, and Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
Congratulations to our hard-working students on truly being among the best in the world.
