Earlier this month, Belmont Law sent two teams to compete in the American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Regional Competition in Brooklyn, New York.

The team of Allyson Lynch, Paul Madden and Sarah Martin were not only crowned the best brief in the region but went undefeated the entire tournament. They are advancing to the national competition in Chicago in mid-April.

The team of Marisa Garcia, Joseph North, and Richard Swor also went undefeated until the very last round, where they missed advancing by one point on one ballot. Garcia was also named the third best advocate in the entire region.
