National Trial Competition - Tryouts Next Week

Participate in one of the best trial advocacy competitions in the nation.  The top two teams from each Region will compete in the National Competition in San Antonio, Texas, on April 3-6, 2013. Last year, UofL advanced to the National Competition.

The Moot Court Board has approved funding to send up to two teams to compete in the Regional Competition.  This year’s Regional Problem will be released November 16.  It will be a criminal problem. 

To tryout, prepare and deliver an opening statement or a closing argument based on a past NTC problem – State of Lone Star v. Tony Grubb.  The Grubb problem can be accessed on the NTC website under “Past Problem Archive.”   http://www.tyla.org/tyla/index.cfm/resources/law-students1/trial-advocacy-programs/national-trial-competition/ The opening or closing should not last longer than 12 minutes.  Please also bring two copies of your resume.

Students will receive two credit hours in the spring for participating in the competition.  Questions?  Contact Erica Wood or Mia Walters.

Tryouts:  October 22
