If you are a 2L, 3L, or 4L and interested in developing your trial skills while simultaneously earning school credit and strengthening your resume, then this competition is for you.

There will be two teams competing with two students on each team. The regional competition is February 20-22, 2009, at Michigan State University, and the final competition is March 25-28, 2009, in San Antonio, Texas.
