Congratulations to law clerk Michael Lovitch for being recognized by the New York City Trial Lawyers Alliance for his outstanding achievements at the American Association for Justice Trial Advocacy Competition held in March 2019. Mike was awarded the New York City Trial Lawyers Alliance Trial Advocacy Award last week at the 85th Annual Gala. Mike competed alongside 3 other Fordham students and was coached by two Fordham alumni. The AAJ competition consisted of five different rounds in which the team was required to use the same facts but present their case in different ways and to varying judges, each of whom would make different rulings and have different ways of conducting their courtroom, keeping the competitors constantly on their toes.
Mike has been a law clerk in the Asbestos Department since January 2019. He has been an integral part of the team since he started. We are excited to have such a driven and determined individual working with us. We cannot wait to see what other great things Mike accomplishes as he finishes his 3L and enters the legal field. Please join me in congratulating Mike for this great accomplishment!
