Trial Advocacy Board Celebrates Another Successful Competition Year

The 2010-11 competition season marked a very successful one for Regent Law’s Trial Advocacy Board (TAB) on both the regional and national levels.

The TAB team consisting of 3Ls Katherine White, Terah Gaertner, Aaron Block, and Jonathan Growick (Regent TAB Chairman) were awarded Second Best Brief at the Stetson National Pretrial Advocacy Competition in early October. In a field of thirteen competitors they beat out teams from such schools as Georgetown University Law Center and College of William and Mary School of Law for the Second Best Brief honors.

Over the weekend of October 29-30, second year law students Lyhana Rael Brewer and Ashleigh Chapman and third year students Joel Hills and Brittany Harris (pictured) were semi-finalists at the ABA Regional Labor and Employment Law Competition in Washington, D.C.

Lastly, Katherine White and Ashleigh Champan advanced to the quarter-final round in the Texas Young Lawyers Association Regional Trial Competition held February 4-6 at the University of Richmond School of Law.

Professors James Duane and David Velloney serve as the faculty advisors to the board.

Unlike trial ad boards at other schools, Regent’s Board integrates Christian ideals into the courtroom with the ultimate goal of molding its members into “aggressive Christian advocates.”

Congratulations Regent TAB members on another successful competition year!
