THIRD IN NATION
Memphis Law's Duberstein Bankruptcy Competition team of Randall Noel and Jennifer Sutch finished
third in the 48-team competition this year. Duberstein competitors advance based on
scores, not won-loss, so there’s not a neat list of who they defeated on the way.
They know they defeated Loyola New Orleans in the quarterfinals and fell to the University
of Houston, the eventual champions. The second Duberstein team, Lauren Siegel and
Bill O’Connor, were awarded honorable mention best brief. The team’s coach is Mark
Wright. The Bankruptcy Section of the Memphis Bar Association sponsors the team.
This is Memphis’s best result in Duberstein after a final eight finish last year.
