Mock Trial Team Wins Regional Competition

February 16, 2009

The Colorado Law student team of Tyrone Glover ’09, LaKischa Cook ’09,  and Katharine Decker ’10 placed first in the regional competition of the 34th Annual National Trial Competition in Oklahoma on February 12-14. The NTC is sponsored by the Texas Young Lawyers Association and the American College of Trial Lawyers. This year, 152 law schools, approximately 300 teams, competed in fourteen regional competitions across the nation. Colorado Law competed from law schools in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. The two winning teams from each regional competition advance to the national rounds in San Antonio to compete in this prestigious mock trial tournament on March 26-28. This year’s case involved a criminal action in which the State of Lone Star asserts that Defendant Kelly Taylor murdered Rob Cañas, a state district court judge; a previous trial resulted in a mistrial.

Congratulation to them and good luck in finals.
