Albany first at Gibbons Criminal Procedure

Albany Law School won first place at this weekend's John J. Gibbons Criminal Procedure Moot Court Competition, a 37-team tournament run by Seton Hall University School of Law. Albany narrowly defeated Chicago-Kent College of Law Illinois Institute of Technology in the final round. St. Thomas University School of Law in Florida (initially, this post indicated it was the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minnesota, but I was mistaken) and University of South Dakota School of Law rounded out the semifinalists.

New York Law School won Best Petitioner Brief; Florida State University College of Law won Best Respondent Brief. Matthew LaRoche won both oralist awards--Best Preliminary Rounds and Best Final Round.

Just a correction, St. Thomas University (FL) was a semi-finalist. University of St. Thomas is in Minnesota and did not compete at Gibbons this year.
