Shapero Cup


The second annual Shapero Cup Moot Court Competition and Symposium was held Monday, Feb. 17, at the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse in Detroit. Local Bankruptcy Court judges participated as well as attorneys from the Detroit Metropolitan area. Teams of law students from law schools in Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee competed. After the competition, an educational session discussed the same fact pattern the teams argued earlier in the day. Speaking at the symposium were (l-r) U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Joel Applebaum, Eastern District of Michigan; retired Bankruptcy Court Judge Walter Shapero; Lisa Gretchko of Howard &?Howard Attorneys PLLC; and Stephen Gross of McDonald Hopkins LLC.
