Moot Court 2013

During the hectic week before finals, the Yeshivah of Flatbush held a moot court competition where students competed against each other in classic law setup. The competition started when captains (Michael Shalom, Daniel Cohen and Bob Husni) handed out prewritten cases that students would argue, either as defendants or plaintiffs. They were then scored on their performance in reasoning, legal accuracy and presentation skills. The grand prize went to Albert Mishaan, Isaac Dayan and Morris Bijou, while the runner ups were Rachel Linfield, Binyamin Abramowitz and Nathan Haddad. The sixty students who participated learned about business law and negligence, which was this year’s topic. Special thanks to Mrs. Zerykier, who coordinated the competition and ensured its success, and to the senior judges that took the time to study the cases and judge each one carefully. This year’s competition was a blast, and hopefully next year’s will be even better.
