About the Murray S. Love Trial Moot Court Competition
Murray S. Love graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1954 and was a distinguished trial attorney in the Pittsburgh area. After his untimely death, his friends, family, and law firm created a fund to underwrite a mock trial competition in his memory. Murray Love's widow, Patty Love Anouchi, and nephew, Paul Supowitz, continue to support the school and competition. The first Murray S. Love Mock Trial Competition took place in 1981.
