Central Islip, NY - Touro Law Center is proud to announce that two of its Moot Court teams advanced to the final round in the Nassau Academy of Law Hon. Elaine Jackson Stack Moot Court held on March 20, 2013, ultimately winning the competition.
This marks the second consecutive win for a Touro team in the prestigious competition.

Having two teams make the finals to compete against each other was thrilling.”
