Coastal Law Moot Court Honor Board reaches quarter-finals

Congratulations to a Moot Court Honor Board team for reaching the quarter-finals this weekend at the National Veterans Law Moot Court Conpetition in Washington, D.C. The team members were Cathy Mainardi and Melinda Patterson (brief writer/oralists). Dale Shelton served as the Team Manager. Professor Sander Moody coached the team.

The Florida First District Court of Appeal will hear cases at Florida Coastal tomorrow and Wednesday, November 6 and 7 starting at 9:00 a.m. each day. This is a tremendous opportunity to observe the Florida appellate court in action.  I encourage students to drop by to hear at least a portion of the arguments.  The court understands that students will be coming and going to attend classes.  Please dress in courtroom attire.  Additionally, please silence your cell phones and remove head coverings not worn for religious reasons.

Legal work experience is essential to becoming job ready!  Learn about a great way to get hands-on experience here on campus during the Spring Semester.  Attend a Skills Lab Information Session on:

Please attend the information session to learn more about the skills labs prior to registration, and look for the e-mail sent to all students regarding the skills labs. We look forward to seeing you there for LUNCH (on 11/13).  This is an opportunity to obtain some great information!
