Partners Nigel Stacey and Joe Stacey Judge 31st Annual Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition


Last week, Nigel Stacey and Joe Stacey, partners at Stacey and Jacobsen, PLLC, were honored to serve as judges for the esteemed 31st Annual Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition.

This annual competition hosted 32 law school teams from across the country to deliver arguments on issues pertaining to maritime law. The event honors Judge John R. Brown, renowned for his service as a distinguished admiralty judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Other volunteers in this competition have included federal judges, prominent members of the maritime bar, presidents and past presidents of the Maritime Law Association of the United States, as well as admiralty professors.

As members of the competition’s “Supreme Court,” Nigel and Joe presided over rounds at the William Kenzo Nakamura United States Federal Courthouse for the Ninth Circuit, as well as rounds held at the Seattle Public Library. More than 50 law students were evaluated during the two day event.

Collaborating with fellow maritime lawyers to offer feedback to aspiring maritime legal professionals was a rich and rewarding experience for these veteran lawyers at Stacey and Jacobsen, PLLC.
