MC Law Competed in National Trial Advocacy Competition


Mississippi College School of Law Moot Court Board participated in Eleventh Annual National Trial Advocacy Competition on October 21-24.  The students traveled to East Lansing, MI, to compete against law schools from across the nation.


MC Law was represented by third-year advocates Peter Stokes and Jessica Murray, with witness from first-year David Parker and second-year Laura Hogan.


This was MC Law's second year to compete in the National Trial Advocacy Competition, hosted by Michigan State School of Law.  "I absolutely enjoyed watching each student develop throughout the tournament," said Eric Brown.  "Jessica Murray embraced her role as captain of the team, and showcased her talents and experience throughout each round.  Peter Stokes proved why he was worthy of such a high recommendation from his Trial Practice professor.  Laura Hogan and David Parker were the best witnesses I saw at the competition.  We Look forward to being invited to NTAC again next year," said Brown.


The competition is an opportunity to perfect students' courtroom advocacy skills before judges, practitioners, and other law schools from across the nation.


The team was coached by Eric Brown '08 of Coxwell & Associates.
