In February, the UNT Dallas College of Law moot court team competed at the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition, and the results were outstanding. Their hard work and dedication paid off when they won the Best Brief award and advanced to the break rounds of the competition, where they went 3-0 in the opening rounds.
The team consisted of Mimi Hoshut, Timothy Hettinger, and Adrien Lewis, who all performed exceptionally well and represented the school with excellence. Mimi, a 2L who is returning to Thomspn Coburn for her second summer experience, contributed greatly to the team's success. They worked tirelessly balancing their school and work obligations to prepare for the competition.
Dallas Managing Partner Nicole Williams led the team as the head coach and Business Litigation Associate Kamran Anwar was an integral part of the team's success as the assistant coach. Partner Mark Sableman, with his First Amendment expertise, even Zoomed in to judge and offer valuable insights. Nicole has coached the team since its start in 2015. She has previously coached other moot court teams, starting in 2006.
Support and guidance from Thompson Coburn attorneys across the Firm were crucial in getting the team ready for the competition.
