The future looks bright for this next generation of trial lawyers! Our firm is proud to have been the Chicago Regional Coordinator of the AAJ Student Trial Advocacy Competition 2019 held at the Richard J. Daley Center. This year, over 200 teams from law schools nationwide competed in 14 regional competitions in the hopes of making it to the National Finals to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The weekend was filled with several rounds of impressive advocacy from 16 teams overall. We would like to congratulate the winner, Loyola University Chicago Law School, for its great achievement as well as all of the other teams for such outstanding performances. Our own founding partner, Ken Levinson, acted as presiding judge for one of the semi-final rounds (pictured above). As coordinator for the second year in a row, we are proud to help provide such a platform for law students to grow in trial advocacy.
We would also like to thank everyone involved in making this competition a possibility, especially those who were willing to take the time out of their busy lives to volunteer this weekend. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
