Frank Gulino coached a Hofstra Law team consisting of 3Ls Jennifer Hanley and Nicholas Tam and 2L Caitlin Steinke to compete in the New York Regional rounds of the ABA’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition (NAAC) on March 1-3. The NAAC is the largest U.S.-based moot court competition, with over 200 teams participating nationwide. The Hofstra team was one of 32 teams in the region, and they went all the way to the regional finals before narrowly being defeated in the final round by a team from Texas Wesleyan. Along the way, they defeated teams from Pace, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Campbell Law School.

In addition, Steinke was named Best Advocate in the entire competition, finishing first among 96 competitors.

The weekend prior, at the Niagara International Moot Court Competition held in Washington, D.C., 2L Evgeny Krasnov won a 5th Place Advocate award in a field of 78 competitors. The Niagara team also consisted of 3Ls Jayasri Ganapathy and Wende Cooper, who argued well on complex issues of international law.
