DU LAW’S NALSA TEAM ADVANCED TO “SWEET 16”

The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in Tucson, AZ hosted the 40th annual NALSA Moot on March 5 and 6, 2015. The question addressed cultural regulatory and civil jurisdiction over non-members on tribal lands. DU Law students* Nadin Said* and K.C. Curillo advanced past the preliminaries to the Sweet 16 round beating out 60 other law school teams. They were supported by teammates* Amy Maas* and Kyle Montour, who is a registered member of the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe in Upstate New York, who led the team’s legal research. This advancement was won based on their appellate brief scores, and their oral arguments on the current Federal Indian civil jurisdiction law. Congratulations to the team and its coach, Helen Hoopes, as this was the first DU Law team to advance past the preliminaries since 2007. The team looks forward to continuing to compete in the international legal field in international indigenous peoples’ law next year in Michigan March 4-6, 2016 at Michigan State University Law School.
