Congratulations to these students, and thank you to everyone that showed interest in the National Trial Competition.
The ABA Client Counseling Competition simulates a law office consultation in which you, acting as a team of two attorneys, are presented with a typical client matter. The topic this year is First Amendment.
The initial tryouts are today from 1:00 to 4:00 PM and will last no longer than 20 minutes.
National Trial Competition Tryouts are THIS Thursday, October 3rd.
To tryout, prepare and deliver an opening statement or a closing argument based on a past NTC problem - Krista Barbour v. Southern Comfort Life Insurance Co. A link for the tryout problem is below. Your opening statement or closing argument should not last longer than 10 minutes. Please also bring a copy of your resume.
The ACTL competition is a SPRING competition, with the regional competition typically held during February. The top two teams from each region will go on to compete at the National Competition, which is held in Austin, Texas from March 26-30th.
Preparation for the regional competition will begin during the fall semester. Accomodations will be made for team members who are already participating in a fall moot court board competition. Students will receive two credit hours in the spring for participating in the competition. Participation as a third-year law student will also satisfy the Capstone Course requirement for the Litigation Skills Certificate Program. Questions? Contact Kim Lynch Balkcom, Matthew McClinton (email@example.com), or Dean Ballard.
