A Texas Tech University School of Law team has won its second consecutive national championship. The moot court team, comprised of third-year law students, triumphed at the National Moot Court Competition in New York City yesterday.

Tech is only the second team to defend their title since the competition began. Rob Sherwin coached the team as they faced up against 30 other teams from around the nation. “Needless to say, I’m so pleased with our amazing students, who continue to make Texas Tech proud. Perhaps the fact I’m most proud of is that we've had top finishes in not just one, but three different disciplines of advocacy competitions already this year. When added to our second-place finish at the Liberty National Negotiation Competition last week and our national championship at the ABA Arbitration Competition two weeks ago, this win signals success across a wide range of lawyering skills.”
