02.25.24 —Sadie Mlika ’24, Matthew Nadeau ’25, Kylie Palmer ’24 and Jacqueline Vieira ’24 placed third at the New York regionals of the Saul Lefkowitz Trademark Moot Court competition, which took place on Saturday, February 3, 2024. The annual competition is hosted by the International Trademark Association to engage students in trademark and unfair competition law. This year’s fact pattern raised the issues of likelihood of confusion, genericness and laches. The team submitted a brief in early January and argued as sub-teams of two before a four-judge panel at the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn. The team placed third overall for brief and oral argument. Charles Choi ’25 served as team manager.

“I’m incredibly proud of the four oralists and incredibly grateful for Charles Choi’s work as the team’s manager,” said Professor Bruce Jacoby, who served as the team’s faculty advisor and coach.
