UT sends first team to national transactional law meet

by Jason Collver on February 20, 2013

The team of Cade Morgan, Taylor Wirth, Ryan Franklin, James Bitter, Ashlee Jenks and Natalie Lubbert represented the University of Tennessee College of Law for the first time in LawMeet® ,  a transactional drafting and negotiation competition. The goal of the National Transactional LawMeet® is to provide each participant a meaningful and engaging simulation of transactional practice.

Morgan and Wirth represented UT at the negotiation with Ryan Franklin as the alternate/observer. While the team did not move beyond the regional meet, the members represented the school with distinction and gained valuable drafting and negotiation experience that they can take with them into the practice of law, said coach Brian Krumm.

“Please join me in congratulating this year’s team, and I encourage you to discuss this experience with them to further understand and appreciate the dynamics of this very valuable moot court experience,” Krumm said.
