IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law announces its Dean Jerome Prince Memorial Evidence Competition team
Miranda Crowell, Samantha Gaul and David Welch, second-year students at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, will participate in the 30th annual Dean Jerome Prince Memorial Evidence Competition March 26 to 28 at Brooklyn Law School.
Law school teams from 36 moot court programs throughout the country compete in the tournament, which is designed to provide students with the opportunity to write and argue appellate briefs that address evidentiary issues in a contemporary context.
The competition is named for the late Jerome Prince, a prominent evidence scholar and the author of Prince on Evidence. A graduate of Brooklyn Law School, Dean Prince joined the Brooklyn Law School faculty in 1934 and served as dean from 1953 to 1971. After his retirement, he remained on faculty, continuing to teach evidence courses until his death in 1988.
Team member Miranda Crowell graduated magna cum laude with a degree in biological science from McNeese State University. Teammate Samantha Gaul earned a degree in English with a concentration in professional and technical writing at the University of South Florida. Teammate David Welch received a bachelor's degree in accounting at Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business.
Founded in 1888, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law is the law school of Illinois Institute of Technology, also known as Illinois Tech, a private, technology-focused, research university offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, science, architecture, business, design, human sciences, applied technology, and law. In 2009, IIT Chicago-Kent successfully defended its championship in the National Moot Court Competition, becoming the first school in that tournament's history to win back-to-back titles.
