Law student Lindsey Fields (2L) was named Best Oral Advocate by the American Bar Association (ABA) at its recent regional National Appellate Advocacy Competition held in Washington, D.C., according to a recent release.
Fields was one of over 80 advocates participating in the regional competition held March 8-10, 2012, which included teams from American, BYU, Emory, George Mason, Georgetown, Liberty, Maryland, Richmond, Rutgers, Temple, Washington & Lee, and William & Mary, among others.
According to team Professor Mike Hernandez, Field’s achievement underscores the dedication to excellence that characterizes Regent’s competition teams.
"Lindsey is not only an exceptionally talented oral advocate, but she worked hard to refine her skills and arguments," Hernandez said. "She relied on the Lord’s wisdom and guidance throughout the competition and was also a valuable teammate, helping our other students refine their arguments as well."
Regent University School of Law has won over 60 national and regional championships, best brief, and best oralist awards in its 25 year history. See a list of recent wins.
