Capping off a remarkable year for its student competition teams, the Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law tied for fifth place out of 154 law schools in the American Bar Association’s 2018-2019 Competitions Championship.

Teams from the Fowler School of Law competed in all four qualifying ABA for Law Students Practical Skills competitions, including the Client Counseling competition, finishing as both regional champions and national semifinalists.

Outside of the ABA Competitions Championship, Fowler School of Law teams also saw great success throughout the school year, winning the National Sports Law Negotiation Competition, making it to the national finals of the Saul Lefkowitz Trademark Moot Court Competition, and winning the national championship in the ABA Representation in Mediation Competition. In addition to numerous other awards and accolades, Fowler competitors took home two “Most Professional” awards.

“This says a lot about the students who compete,” said Professor Nancy Schultz, director of Competitions and Alternative Dispute Resolution Program at the Fowler School of Law. “They care, they work hard, they are collegial, they support each other, and they are committed to learning and becoming the best, most professional lawyers they can be.”
