Congratulations to the National Mock Trial Team!

Congratulations to the 2014 National Mock Trial Team who competed in the Regional Competition in Columbia, Missouri this weekend.

Congratulations to Lacey Gullett and Lindsey Howard for advancing to the Regional Semifinals! 

Special congratulations to Gregory Finch for winning Best Hair of the Competition Award. His luscious ginger locks distracted many and undoubtedly gained, at the very least, 1-2 additional ballots. Also garnering distinct honors was Chadler Hardin, whose inventive and ever-expanding vocabulary left many competitors with the strong desire to flock to their dictionaries to verify that the words he used were, in fact, words.

Special thanks to the patient, smart, and convincing 1Ls who dedicated their time and services to helping out the four competitors, sometimes spending 4+ hours at a time pretending to be experts in the pipe testing business. Thanks Madison Shoffner, Aida Almasalkhi, and Carolyn Allen!

Finally, a HUGE thank you to the coaches, Rob Riley and Jessica Schulte, who spent hours teaching the competitors how to run a successful trial, contain their emotions, make use of enlargements, and rent mini-vans.
