MC Law Advances to Semifinal Round of Regional ABA Labor and Employment Competition

 

On November 20-21, 2010, MC Law traveled to Dallas, TX, to compete in the seventh annual ABA Labor and Employment Trial Advocacy Competition.  MC Law was one of sixteen schools to compete at the regional.  Third-year advocates Neil Wilson, April McDonald, Eric Marks, and Charlie Wheland represented the school. 

 

For the first-time ever, MC Law advanced all the way to the semifinal round of the competition.  The advocates faced competitors from Duquesne School of Law and University of Houston School of Law on their way to reaching the semifinal round, where they were matched against a team from Baylor Law School.

 

The competition focused on current labor and employment issues surrounding the Americans with Disabilities Act and presented students with the opportunity to develop their trial advocacy skills in a courtroom setting.

 

This year’s MC Law team was coached by Will Manuel and Mary Clay Morgan, both of Bradley, Arant, Boult & Cummings.
