Students Win National Telecommunications Moot Court Comp

Congratulations to Colorado Law students Alex Kimata, Gabby Palanca, and Mike Stegman for winning the 23rd Annual National Telecommunications Moot Court Competition. The competition was hosted by the Federal Communications Bar Association and held at The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C. on February 25, 2017. The trio brought home awards for best brief and best argument, and Alex Kimata won the award for best oralist.

Silicon Flatirons helped the team prepare. Fellows Ken Fellman and William Levis joined Fellowships and Special Projects Director Blake Reid to coach the team. This win continues a distinguished tradition at Colorado Law, which has now landed the title four years in a row and five years out of the last six.

The National Telecommunications Moot Court Competition provides students the opportunity to argue before private and government practitioners in the communications field. Each year, the competition problem, which is written by members of the FCBA, is “ripped from the headlines” of current technology, intellectual property, and telecommunications issues.
