Chicago-Kent selects 2016 Kaufman Securities Law Moot Court Competition team
Second-year students Michael Cosgrove, Paul King and Alexandria Seydel will represent Chicago-Kent College of Law at Illinois Tech in the 2016 Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Securities Law Moot Court Competition April 1 to 3 at Fordham University School of Law.
Named for the Honorable Irving R. Kaufman, a 1931 Fordham law graduate and former chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the competition offers students the opportunity to test their appellate advocacy skills before leading jurists, securities regulators, academics and practitioners.
Chicago-Kent's Ilana Diamond Rovner Program in Appellate Advocacy, the umbrella program for many of the law school's moot court activities, 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.
