Teams fielded by Gonzaga University Law School won more awards than any other school in the recent Mugel National Tax Moot Court Tournament held recently in Buffalo, NY.
The team of Nicholas Fisher, Eric Whiting and Emily Wilson won the third-place Best Brief award, and advanced to the semi-final round based on brief score plus preliminary oral argument score.
The team of Russell Knight and Gavin West was undefeated (4-0) in preliminary oral argument rounds, and Eric Whiting received the third-place Best Oral Advocate award.
The Mugel competition is the oldest and largest tax moot court competition in the country. Gonzaga’s team was coached by Adjunct Professor Eric Sachtjen, and many professors and practitioners helped judge practice rounds.
