ROIG Lawyers Attorney to Volunteers at NSU Moot Court Society Competition

October 13, 2016

ROIG Lawyers attorney Brett M. Wishna will serve as a judge for the Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law’s Moot Court Society 2016 Upperclassman Feinrider Competition. The event will take place on Sunday, October 16th.

Brett has gone back each year to participate as a judge in the competition since graduating from the NSU’s Shepard Broad College of Law in 2013. “As a former competitor and executive board member, being able to go back and contribute to the program during its annual competitions has been a fulfilling experience. My involvement with the Moot Court Society while a student at NSU was instrumental in the development of my legal writing and oral advocacy, both of which are skills I use on a daily basis as an attorney,” said Brett.

By participating in this tournament, potential members of the Society apply their problem-solving skills by writing an appellate brief on a specific problem and then arguing their case before a panel of judges. Students who are successful in this competition will be invited to become a member of the Moot Court Society. The Moot Court Society has been one of the most prestigious and active societies of the Shepard Broad College of Law. Membership in the Society provides students with an opportunity to supplement their “book learning” with practical experience in appellate-level oral advocacy.
