This past weekend the Law School's American College of Trial Lawyers mock trial teams competed in Grand Rapids, Michigan in Region 7 of the ACTL National Trial Competition. Two teams represented the Law School - Samantha Constantine and Thomas Stevens, and Paul Chumbley and Josh Porter.
After competing in three preliminary rounds, Samantha and Thomas were one of four teams (out of 24) that advanced to the final rounds. UL was paired against UK. Both teams were undefeated. Samantha and Thomas, who represented the plaintiff during the final trial, defeated UK, and were declared co-champions of the Region 7 ACTL National Trial Competition. Samantha and Thomas will now represent the Law School and Region 7 in the 37th Annual National Trial Competition to be held in Austin, Texas, March 21-24, 2012. Only two teams advance from each of the 14 regions across the country.
The teams and coaches want to thank all UofL law students who served as witnesses during practices. Both trial teams put in countless hours to prepare for the competition. Samantha and Thomas will now receive a new civil problem and will have one month to prepare both sides.
The ACTL National Trial Team coaches, Kimberly Ballard and Rob Riley, congratulate Samantha and Thomas for advancing from one of the most competitive NTC regions in the country!
