2022 Ip Moot

Once again, Notre Dame Law School’s Intellectual Property Moot Court team has advanced to the national championship round of the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition.

This is the fourth time in five years that Notre Dame Law School’s IP students have advanced to the national finals of the competition. The Law School’s team won the national title in 2020.

The team consists of third-year law students Brittany Von Rueden, Caroline Wenzel, and Kristen Burns, and second-year law students Nicholas D’Andrea, Shelby Dedo, and Christine Logan. They earned a spot in the national finals by placing second in the Chicago regional round this past weekend. The team also earned the award for best oralist.

The Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition, sponsored by the International Trademark Association, introduces law students to important issues arising in U.S. trademark and unfair competition law. Students develop their brief writing and oral advocacy skills in a mock courtroom experience.

Approximately 80 teams compete in the tournament each year across six different regions. Twelve teams advance to the national championship round, which will be held in March.
