NEW YORK, NY - On April 9, 2011, Michael L. Moskowitz, a founding member of Weltman & Moskowitz, LLP, participated, for the eleventh consecutive year, as one of three "appellate judges" sitting at Hofstra University School of Law in connection with oral arguments made by first-year law students.

On Saturday, April 9, 2011, fourteen first-year law school students honed their oral argument skills in connection with an appeal involving the enforceability of a covenant not to compete.

Mr. Moskowitz, and his judging colleagues, Kenneth Sternberg, Esq. and Pat McCormick, Esq., were extremely impressed by the students who appeared to have worked extremely hard in preparation for their oral arguments. A number of the students commented on how much they enjoyed the fact that Mr. Moskowitz and his colleagues were a "hot" bench. The students felt that the experience of having to think on their feet and answer rapid-fire questions was not only educational, but a window into their future as litigators.

Mr. Moskowitz is a 1982 graduate of the Hofstra University School of Law.
