The UGA School of Law won the inaugural National Trial Advocacy Tournament, hosted by the University of Florida Levin College of Law Oct. 3-5.
The team was composed of third-year law students Garrett S. Burrell, Joshua H. Dorminy, Whitney T. Judson and Ashley R. Wright. They were coached by advocacy director Kellie Casey who called the win a “very great start to the advocacy season.”
Additionally, Dorminy was named as the best advocate of the final round, and Judson was selected for delivering the best closing argument in the preliminary rounds.
“The competition was intense, and I could not be more proud of the team’s performance. Their hard work and dedication really paid off,” Casey said.
Georgia Law faced competition from Mississippi College, Fordham University, the University of Akron and Faulkner University and went undefeated in all four rounds to eventually overcome Florida Coastal School of Law for the national title.
