Public Interest Research Bureau Completes is First Project of the semester
A Florida legal aid attorney submitted the project requiring the students to analyze whether a creditor, in support of an account stated claim, is required to produce itemized account statements when the debtor denies receiving account statements and alleges satisfaction of the debt. Under the supervision of Professors Millard and Clement, the students dedicated a three-week period to researching the issues and drafting a thorough memo, which was submitted to the attorney in early October. Congratulations to the following students who collaborated on this project: Gelilla Asfaw, Brittany Snell, Hailey Osland, Barbara Southmayd; and Chief Managing Editors, Michael French, and Sarah Grizzle.
The Research Bureau is currently working on four other projects. If you are interested in learning about the Research Bureau or participating, please visit us on the school website at https://www.fcsl.edu/bureau/.

Moot Court National Successes
Congratulations to two Moot Court Honor Board teams for their incredible success at a national competition in Atlanta. One team advanced to the semi-finals, the other to the quarter-finals.

The semi-final team consisted of Keisha Baptiste, Charlie Pearson and Rachel Kotkin. The members of the quarter-final team were Kristy Warren, Joseph Nall and Jennifer Pruden. Professor Nick Martino coached both teams. Congratulations to all.
