Penn Law Team Wins Patent Law Moot Court Regionals

March 19, 2014

Congratulations to 3Ls Taylor Gooch and Ben Sirolly, who won the western regional competition of the AIPLA’ Giles S. Rich National Patent Law Moot Court this past weekend. Taylor and Ben competed as a part of Prof. Polk Wagner’s patent law appellate advocacy class.

Taylor and Ben beat a field of 21 teams. On their way to taking the regionals overall, they also won the awards for best Appellant and best Appellee brief.  They now go on to compete at the National finals at the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington DC in April.

One additional note:  this is the third year in a row and fourth of the last five that Penn has won the competition. Congratulations and thanks go to Prof. Wagner!
