"This year's competition was an incredible success thanks to the many generous volunteers who judged trials during the competition and the dedicated work of the Board of Student Advisors, especially the Co-chairs of the Mock Trial Competition, Kimberly Cohen and Jacklyn Grodin," said Tom Carey, Director of Advocacy Programs. "I'm very proud of our students in particular for all their hard work."
The problem used in the intra-school competition alternates each year between a civil and a criminal case. Sponsored by the Board of Student Advisors, the Mock Trial Competition has been held during the fall semester since 1976. As a result of the competitions success, both regionally and nationally, the Law School has developed an outstanding reputation for preparing students who will be hired for litigation positions in both major law firms and public law practices.
