Andrew Schindler, a 2L Candidate on the University of Miami National Security & Armed Conflict Law Review, took home first place at the 2014 John T. Gaubatz Moot Court Competition at the University of Miami School of Law.
Schindler and his partner, Mac Morey, defeated fellow 2Ls Janelly Crespo and Priscilla Perez in front of a panel featuring Judge Andrew Hurwitz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Judge Robin Rosenbaum of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and Judge Adalberto Jordan, also of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
“Andrew is an incredible advocate and the Moot Court Board, as well as the University, were proud to have him represent us,” said 3L Alyssa Landino, last year’s champion and this year’s Gaubatz Vice President in charge of running the competition. “He stayed calm and remained deferential in front of an extremely tough panel, while also answering all of their questions gracefully.”
The John T. Gaubatz Moot Court Competition is the largest moot court contest at Miami Law, featuring 82 second- and third-year competitors vying for roughly 25 spots on the prestigious Charles C. Papy Moot Court Board, which is currently ranked #2 in the nation.
Schindler is joined on the Moot Court Board by fellow NSAC candidate Stephanie Rosendorf. NSAC would like to congratulate both Schindler and Rosendorf, as well as the rest of the new members of the Moot Court Board, on this fantastic accomplishment.
