Tucker Ellis is proud to announce that the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law (C-M) moot court team took home the win in the National Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition (FDMCC). Brandon Cox coached the C-M team of DeAngelo LaVette and Emily Stolfer, who won every round unanimously, defeating teams from Columbia, Emory, the University of Virginia, George Washington, and Texas A&M, among others. The national competition, which included the top 18 teams from across the United States, was held during the National Black Law Students Association's Annual Convention in Houston, Texas.
This marks the second consecutive year the C-M team has competed in the national event. This year's team advanced after its February win at the Midwest Regional Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition. For more information on the FDMCC, click here.
