ASU Jessup team places 2nd at Rocky Mountain Regionals, advances to Internationals

Tuesday, February 18, 2014


ASU’s Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Team earned a bid to the White & Case International Rounds in Washington, D.C. next month. The team finished in second place out of 22 teams at the Rocky Mountain Regional Competition in Denver, Co.   

The team includes students Honore Callingham, Lauren Hill, Andrew Lishko, Amanda Newman, and Nicole Stewart, and is coached by Sam Efird and Rob Gordon.

Lishko and Stewart also each took home top advocate awards at the competition.

By finishing as one of the top two teams in its region, ASU will now be one of twelve American schools representing the U.S. in the international rounds. Jessup is the world’s largest moot court competition, and includes teams from over 550 law schools in more than 80 countries.

“Participating in the international rounds is an exceptional opportunity,” Efird said.

Efird added that ASU has developed a track record for excellence in the competition. Last year, ASU won best combined in the memorial category at the Denver Regional and has sent two teams to the international rounds in the last four years.
