March 16, 2021
Jackson Kelly is pleased to announce that Law Clerk Corey A. Stanford and his team won the prestigious 45th Annual Robert F. Wagner National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court Competition. The Duquesne University School of Law students emerged as the champions of this competition from a field of forty teams from law schools across the country. The team argued on and off brief six times on their way to victory, beating teams from Emory University, Wayne State, the University of Cincinnati, Villanova University, the University of Illinois Chicago, and defeating an impressive Loyola Chicago team in the final round.
Stanford was also awarded a Best Oralist award at the competition for his excellent advocacy in the final round. In addition, the team also produced the third-best brief at the competition. These accolades are even more admirable considering the entirely virtual format of the competition, which was masterfully executed by New York Law School's Moot Court Association.
