All of us at Stephens Friedland would like to congratulate our law clerk, Jonathan Shin. This past weekend, Jonathan competed in the Western Regional Thomas Tang Moot Court competition and advanced to the final round. As a result of their performance in Regionals, Jonathan and his partner, Lindsay Niles, will be advancing to the National competition in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Thomas Tang National Moot Court Competition was founded in 1993 and is administered by the NAPABA Law Foundation and the NAPABA Judicial Council. The Competition honors the late Judge Thomas Tang, a champion of individual rights, an advocate for the advancement of minority attorneys, an ardent supporter of NAPABA and the moot court competition. Judge Tang served on the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals from 1977 until his passing in 1995.

Preparation for these competitions require dozens of hours on top of a demanding law school schedule, and then Jonathan also works as a law clerk three days a week at Stephens Friedland LLP. We are truly impressed and wish him and his partner the best of luck in New Orleans.
