For the second year in a row, a Stetson Law team won the Young Lawyers Division’s Robert Orseck Memorial Moot Court Competition at The Florida Bar Annual Convention in Orlando.

Team members Tyler Brown, Thomas Fuhrman, and Hannah Klonowski brought home the win — but the triumph doesn’t end with that back-to-back win. Klonowski won the Best Oralist, Preliminary Rounds award and the Best Oralist, Final Round award, repeating fellow student Jessica Merkel’s wins during the 2021 event. Professor Brooke Bowman, director of the Moot Court Board, coached the students.

Teams that advanced to the final round argued in front of the justices of the Florida Supreme Court.
