CM Attorneys Prepare Loyola’s Jessup International Law Moot Court Team For Competition
Ed Shin, Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary of Clopay Building Products has served as a coach of Jessup International Law Moot Court team for the Loyola University School of Law. Ed called Senior Partner, Scott Ritchie, with whom he has worked with on product liability issues for many years to see if Scott and the lawyers at Clausen Miller might be able to help him and his team gain an “extra edge” in the competition. Ed and Scott decided that a couple of “practice moot court rounds” might help the Jessup team sharpen their skills and give them the extra experience needed to succeed in their competition.
Seasoned litigators and former moot court participants were culled from the Clausen Miller attorney ranks, and they generously offered their time and experience to help Ed and Loyola’s Jessup team. Joshua Wolkomir volunteered to serve as a judge over two nights of practice rounds conducted at the Firm’s Chicago office.
Ultimately, the Loyola Jessup Moot Court team took the lessons they learned in practice and placed 9th out of 22 teams in the competition, with team member Alex Moe finishing as the 6th best oralist out of approximately 100 competitors.
Congratulations to Ed and his team on a job well done!
