Former Hale Law Intern Argues Before Florida Supreme Court and Wins!
On June 23, 2022, Hale Law’s former intern, Tyler Brown, advocated in front of the Florida Supreme Court Justices and won! Tyler Brown is a member of Stetson University College of Law’s nationally ranked Moot Court Board. Moot Court allows law students to demonstrate their oral advocacy skills and master the importance of writing and arguing appellate briefs.
This particular competition is known as the Robert Orsek Memorial Moot Court Competition, and it is composed of 10 Florida Law Schools. Tyler Brown and his partner were challenged to write a 30-page brief and stand in front of multiple attorneys and judges to advocate for or against issues like the economic loss rule and the independent tort doctrine.
Tyler and his partner advanced through five rounds of competition and the sixth and final round was an oral argument in front of the Florida Supreme Court. When asked how Tyler felt as the Supreme Court Justices entered the courtroom, he stated “I felt confident that Stetson gave me the tools to be able to argue properly and that made me feel comfortable in this courtroom and in any courtroom I enter.” Tyler and his partner won the entire competition, and his partner received the best oralist award during both days of competition. This is the second year in a row Stetson has won this competition and Tyler hopes to keep the winning streak alive! Congratulations from everyone at Hale Law, Tyler! We are very proud of you and look forward to watching your career.
