UC Hastings serves up tasty concoction at Tang

University of California Hastings College of the Law took home the top prize at the international finals of the 2009 Thomas Tang Moot Court Competition. The tournament, which is put on by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association Law Foundation, started with more than 70 teams spread across five regions. The international finalists met in Boston on November 21 for the championship. Nova Southeastern University Law Center won second place. Chicago-Kent College of Law at the Illinois Institute of Technology and the John Marshall Law School finished as semifinalists.

Nova Southeastern also claimed Best Brief honors. Tara Shelke of John Marshall was the Best Oralist.

Next year's international finals will take place in my hometown of Los Angeles.

Full results are here. Hastings has a web report here; Nova Southeastern has one here.
