ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition Team Takes a Close Second at Boston Regionals

Published on: Thursday, March 24, 2011

Jeremiah Pilon, Christina Pilon, and Kreg Wagner represented the University of St. Thomas School of Law on the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition Team at the regional competition in Boston on March 10th through 12th.  UST's team won their first 4 matches, besting teams from Miami, Northeastern, and Syracuse (twice) in the preliminary rounds to advance to the regional finals.  There they lost to Indiana on a 3-1 balloting by the judges, who were all so complimentary of both teams that one of them suggested that the advocates send him resumes so they could help him in his own practice.

Jeremiah Pilon was awarded 2nd Best Oralist in the Boston region, out of approximately 100 participants.  UST's team was awarded 2nd Best Brief in the Boston region, out of 39 teams. The team was coached by Joel Nichols.

They represented UST well in their performance and competition, and we are grateful for their hard work and great showing.
