The Delaware Law School Moot Court Honor Society recently completed its annual Distinguished Jurist Competition, with Landis Rath & Cobb attorneys (and law school alumni) Kim Brown, Matt Pierce and Nick Jenner all volunteering to judge oral arguments. LRC law clerk and current Delaware Law 3L Joshua Scorziello, a member of the Moot Court Honor Society Board, served as chairperson.
Widener University Delaware Law School students were required to submit a brief and engage in oral arguments in front of judges at the appellate level, with the timely issue centered on dischargeability of student loans in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The goal of the competition is to provide real world experience and connect local practitioners with bright rising students from Delaware Law School.
LRC extends congratulations to the competition winners, Kevin Caneco and Marisa Piccarreto. The additional two finalists were Leonor Torres (who was named best oralist) and Kacey Johnson. The Moot Court Honor Society faculty advisors are Leslie Johnson, Esq. and Rebecca Scalio, Esq.
The Moot Court Honor Society would also like to thank the Delaware American Bankruptcy Inn of Court and local bankruptcy attorneys who volunteered to judge oral argument. Judging the final round of the competition was the Honorable Brendan L. Shannon, Delaware Law School Dean Rodney Smolla, and Professor Bruce Grohsgal.
