Moot Court teams, Wannemacher celebrate successes

June 18, 2012

PORTLAND, Maine – Coaches and participants of the University of Maine School of Law’s Moot Court Teams are looking back with pride on another fun and successful year.

Members of Maine Law’s Moot Court Teams competed in the Mardi Gras Sports Law Invitational Competition, the Charleston School of Law National Moot Court Competition, the Duberstein Bankruptcy Competition, the Trilateral Competition, the Luke Charles Moore Invitational Moot Court Competition and the National First Amendment Moot Court Competition.

Prof. Angela Arey noted the individual success of Timothy Wannemacher, a 2012 graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. He received two awards for his outstanding oral advocacy skills at two recent Moot Court competitions. Wannemacher was selected as the Top Oralist at the Trilateral Competition, an appellate advocacy competition between Maine Law, Dalhousie Law School, and the University of New Brunswick School of Law. The competition was hosted by Dalhousie in November and focused on the difference in Canadian and American approaches to the rights to self-government and equal protection of indigenous people.

In February, Tim and Kimberly Kay Kowalski, also a 2012 graduate, competed together in the Luke Charles Moore Invitational Moot Court Competition hosted by Howard University in Washington, D.C. As a team, Tim and Kim advanced to the final round and finished in second place in the competition, which focused on constitutional law.
