Pitt Law Students Receive High Awards at Second Annual National Health Law Transactional Competition

3L students Willis Bish, Robert Holland, and Hillary Stemple recently formed what was the first Pitt Law team to ever compete in the National Health Law Transactional Competition and walked away with top honors. 

 Hosted by the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, this second annual national competition, held in Chicago from March 22-23, sought to expose law students to the core competencies of the corporate and regulatory practice of health care law. Styled after moot court competitions, students applied corporate lawyering skills by providing legal advice on a potential business opportunity to a hypothetical health care client.

Pitt Law’s team placed third in both the oral presentation and the written memo, the highest ranking of any team from a school that had never competed before.
