TOP SIXTEEN IN THE NATION & REGIONAL CHAMPIONS
The third-year ABA moot court team of Tracy Bradshaw and Grace Whiting ranked in the top 16 teams in the nation at the ABA National tournament this year.  The team also went undefeated at regionals.  This is Tracy and Grace’s second ABA regional championship.  Joanna Waddell from the 2L ABA team was also recognized as one of the top ten advocates in the region.  Director of Advocacy, Barbara Kritchevsky, is the team’s coach.

THIRD IN NATION
Memphis Law's Duberstein Bankruptcy Competition team of Randall Noel and Jennifer Sutch finished third in the 48-team competition this year. Duberstein competitors advance based on scores, not won-loss, so there’s not a neat list of who they defeated on the way.  They know they defeated Loyola New Orleans in the quarterfinals and fell to the University of Houston, the eventual champions.  The second Duberstein team, Lauren Siegel and Bill O’Connor, were awarded honorable mention best brief.  The team’s coach is Mark Wright.  The Bankruptcy Section of the Memphis Bar Association sponsors the team.  This is Memphis’s best result in Duberstein after a final eight finish last year.
