On March 11, Davis Malm attorney James E. Gallagher acted as a mock trial judge at the Boston Regional National Appellate Advocacy Competition sponsored by the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division. Student competitors participated in a hypothetical appeal to the United States Supreme Court, which required them to write a brief, as either respondent or petitioner, then argue their case in front of the mock court. Mr. Gallagher judged oral arguments of four teams. The NAAC is one of the largest moot court competitions in the country and emphasizes the development of oral advocacy skills through a realistic appellate advocacy experience. This year’s competition was the largest in its history, with 198 teams from 119 schools throughout 15 states competing. Mr. Gallagher focuses his practice on business, corporate, and commercial litigation. He serves as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and instructs at the Naval Justice School, assisting active duty staff in the instruction of Marine, Navy, and Coast Guard judge advocates and enlisted legal service specialists. Mr. Gallagher is an active member of the Boston and Massachusetts Bar Associations and is also a staff member/advisor for Spark the Wave, an organization focused on promoting teen volunteerism.
