It is the first time that a Rutgers team has won the Regional Championship. Additionally, David Baumwoll received the 2013 Best Advocate Award, the competition’s highest individual honor.

Their tireless preparation and attention to detail will serve them well in San Antonio, and in their promising future legal careers."
