Touro Wins Again!

For the third time in as many years, a Touro Moot Court team defeated teams from CUNY, Hofstra, and St. John’s law schools to win the Nassau County Bar Association Moot Court Competition. In the final round, Touro, competing against a very polished team from CUNY, argued in front of a distinguished panel of jurists, including Justice Leonard Austen of the Appellate Division Second Department.

Second-year Touro students Scott MacLagan and Jessica Mannix demonstrated impressive command of the law and the facts and, in a very close round, went on to win the competition. In addition, Touro’s brief ranked second in the brief part of the competition. Professor Patricia Rooney coached the team to victory.

Congratulations Scott, Jessica, and Professor Rooney!
