Moot Court students place second in information technology and privacy law competition

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law students, Megan Peterson, Tyler Rench, and Kelly Stein (coach) recently competed in the John Marshall Law School Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law in Chicago, Illinois. The team competed against 32 other teams from across the United States, as well as several International teams.

Arguing in six rounds over three days, Ms. Peterson and Mr. Rench argued in front of distinguished professors and practitioners, federal district and appellate judges, and Chief Justices from several state supreme courts. In the final round of the competition, Loyola placed second overall. In addition, before arriving to Chicago, the team submitted a brief to be preliminarily graded. Loyola’s brief scored the highest amongst all 33 briefs, and was recognized formally as the Best Petitioner’s Brief. Because of its success, Loyola’s brief will be published in John Marshall’s Information Technology and Privacy Law Journal.
