Chicago-Kent invited to participate in the 2016 Andrews Kurth Moot Court National Championship
Alex Beehler, Peter Cheun and Alexandra McNicholas, third-year students at Chicago-Kent College of Law at Illinois Tech, will represent the law school in the ninth annual Andrews Kurth Moot Court National Championship January 28 to 30, 2016, at the University of Houston Law Center's Blakely Advocacy Institute.
The Andrews Kurth Moot Court National Championship is an annual "best of the best" competition, sponsored by Andrews Kurth LLP and the University of Houston Law Center's Blakely Advocacy Institute. Each academic year, the organizers track the results of moot court competitions involving American law students. Only the 16 top-scoring schools in the country are invited to compete. This is the eighth consecutive year in which Chicago-Kent has been invited to participate in the prestigious competition.
Beehler, Cheun and McNicholas were members of the Chicago-Kent team that won the 2015 William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition championship and best brief award.
Chicago-Kent's Ilana Diamond Rovner Program in Appellate Advocacy was established in 1992. Since then, Chicago-Kent students have won numerous individual honors and regional and national competitions, including consecutive titles in the New York City Bar Association's National Moot Court Competition.
