In addition to his interest in litigation and trial practice, his passion for appellate work led him to join the Moot Court Board of Advocates, where he served as an Executive Director and worked primarily on drafting the problem for the 2019 Patrick A. Keenan Appellate Competition.

As a contestant in the 2018-2019 Patrick A. Keenan Appellate Competition, Nucho was the recipient of the 3rd place best oralist award. His team also made it to the octofinals round in a national moot court competition in New York.
