(L-R) ALA National Moot Court Competition Champions Tuck and Curry

We are delighted to report that the FSU Law Moot Court Team has won first place in the 2020 Appellate Lawyers Association National Moot Court Competition, which was held virtually November 6-7. Florida State beat University of California-Hastings—whose moot court team is ranked second in the nation—in the finals. Winning team members are third-year law students Holly Parker Curry and Erin Tuck. In addition, third-year student Alexandra Gioffre participated in the brief writing portion of the competition. Courtney Brewer, a shareholder at The Mills Firm in Tallahassee, and FSU Law alum Judge Stephanie W. Ray (’95), of the First District Court of Appeal, coached the team to victory. FSU Law’s team also won the Appellate Lawyers Association National Moot Court Competition in 2017. In addition, Brewer and Judge Ray previously coached an FSU team to victory in the 2015 J. Braxton Craven, Jr. Memorial Moot Court Competition. We are very proud of our talented Moot Court students and thankful for their dedicated coaches. Winning a virtual moot court national championship bolsters the team’s already strong record of success.
