I have been amazed and impressed at their mastery of this very complex area of law,” said Professor & Director of Health Law Studies Deborah Farringer, who coached Belmont Law’s teams.

The national championship team ranked above 20 other teams in the tournament, including teams from the University of Tennessee College of Law, Loyola University Chicago School of Law and the Shepard Broad College of Law at Nova Southeastern.
