Touro Law participated in the inaugural New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Arbitration competition, held in November. Competitors were required to write a brief and conduct an arbitration before a panel of 3 arbitrators. The team, consisting of Ashley Moruzzi, Diana Romanello and Jonathan Cohen, exemplified superior skills in their direct, cross and redirect which led to an award for Best Exam!
A team of three students competed in the Puerto Rican Bar Association’s Moot Court Competition. After winning at the regional level and earning best brief, the team traveled to Orlando, Florida in October to compete nationally. The bench included New York's own Judge Jenny Rivera as well as several other highly respected jurists. The team - Denisse Mira, Bridgette Nunez, and Jose Rojas - was well prepared and confident. They took second place -- an extraordinary showing for our first time competing in this National competition!
