Two Florida Coastal School of Law teams advanced to the final round of The Thomas Tang National Moot Court Regional Competition and earned champion and finalist honors. From left, the team of Rishi Pattni and Nina Carro won the regional championship, while Alexandra Amador and Jansen Balisi were finalists. Kristen Warren (right) and professor Sander Moody (not pictured) managed and coached both teams. Each team will represent Coastal in Washington, D.C., at the international rounds next month.
