A team of students from the School of Law finished in first place at the Region 5 qualifying round of the Texas Bar Association National Trial Competition. The three students now will advance to the national mock trial championship to be held in Austin, Texas, in late March.
Third-year law student Jeremy B. Dailey and second-year students Whitney T. Judson and W. Alexander “Alex” Smith comprised the winning team. They defeated teams from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of South Carolina at the regional contest.
A second team from UGA, comprised of third-year law students Gregg J. Conley and Samuel E. “Sam” Britt, also competed in the regional mock trial tournament.
