Congratulations to Cardozo’s Transactional LawMeets team for winning the Southeastern Regional Transactional LawMeets competition on February 26, 2016! The Cardozo team included students Brett Dovman '16, Melissa Trenk '17 and Daniel Resnick '17, with help from fellow student Danielle Siegel '17 and coach Jillian Gautier, Program Director of the Samuel & Ronnie Heyman Center on Corporate Governance and Adjunct Professor of Law.

LawMeets is a national competition giving students the opportunity to participate in a mock M&A transaction. The program was created to give law students interested in transactional practice exposure to the ins and outs of corporate transactions and a way to learn the skills involved in a transactional deal, similar to a “moot court” experience for students interested in litigation. This year, 84 teams participated in seven regional competitions, with 12 teams participating in the Southeastern Regional competition. The finalists, including the Cardozo team, will be competing in the National LawMeets competition held at the offices of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in New York City on April 1, 2016.
