Luke Hendrix, '10, and Mark Narveson, '10, won the Best Respondents Brief Award at Pepperdine University School of Law's 12th Annual National Entertainment Law Moot Court Competition, which was held November 13-15 in Malibu.
The McGeorge team, coached by Professors Jenny Darlington-Person, '00, and Jennifer Gibson, advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament before being eliminated.
Twenty-six law schools competed in the three-day competition. Each team, consisting of two or three students, argued entertainment law issues in three preliminary rounds before a panel of judges drawn from a pool of 80 entertainment lawyers from the greater Los Angeles area. Texas Tech was the champion.
It was the second year that Coach Darlington-Person's team walked off with best brief recognition and advanced in the tournament. Preston Morgan, '09, Allysia Holland, '09, and Jill Himlan, '09, took writing honors last year.
