The weekend of February 13-14 was one of great success for three Richmond Law moot court teams.

Richmond competitors in the 2010 William B. Spong Invitational Moot Court Competition hosted by William & Mary's Marshall Wythe School of Law, returned with four awards. Third year student Andi Shultz and second year student Tricia Dunlap were the overall runners-up in the 17-school competition, and also received best brief award. Dunlap was the runner-up best oralist, and Schultz received the best-oralist award.

During the same weekend, Richmond Law's Black Law Students Association made a strong showing at the 2010 Regional Frederick Douglass Moot Court and Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competitions sponsored by the National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA). Richmond's Frederick Douglass Moot Court team, composed of second year students Erin Bender and Sue Chan, was awarded Best Brief and finished in third place. The Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial team, composed of third year students Kristen McNeal and Dave McGill, along with second year students Kate Sturdivant and Providence Okoye, defeated the University of Virginia (2009 Regional & National Champions), Temple University, Georgetown University, and West Virginia University for a second place finish. Both teams have advanced to the National Championship, which will be held in Boston next month.
