Congratulations to Baylor Law students Jake Fisher and Michael Cupero! The duo won Baylor Law's M.D. Anderson Spring 2017 Moot Court Competition yesterday.
"To me personally, the win in the finals was the cherry on top—the journey meant more than the hardware—but, given the excellent competition, it certainly feels wonderful to come out with the win," said Jacob Fisher. "The style of teaching at Baylor, our gracious friends who offered speaking advice (and advice on dealing with the nerves), and, of course, my stoic partner were all vital to my success in this competition."
"Winning the competition is amazing. It’s surreal. It’s such great competition put on by professors and officers that really care about students improving their advocacy skills," said Michael Cupero. "It’s an honor to be considered in the company of past winners, and it’s an honor to have been named this year’s winner considering how incredible every team in the competition has been."
A special thank you to our final round judges: Professor Jill Wieber Lens, Professor Bridget Fuselier, Professor Matt Cordon, Adjunct Professor Quyen Vo, and Baylor Law students Kristi Kneedler and Chloe Stevens (the champions from last fall's moot court competition), to everyone who helped organize and support the competition, and to our Chief Judge, James Stanton, Dallas lawyer and former State District Court Judge.
