Trial Advocacy team advances to semi-final rounds

Congratulations are in order for one of Loyola's trial advocacy teams that participated in the Texas Young Lawyers' Association Competition in Austin, Texas, in February 2010. Loyola's team successfully advanced to the semi-finals where they competed against University of Texas.

Advocates, Kellie Johnson and Greg Akers, coached by recent law graduate, Matt McLaren, competed against law schools, South Texas, Baylor and Tulane.

Ben Lambert, President of Trial Advocacy, explained that although the team did not beat University of Texas, that Loyola's advocates received great compliments from the judges. He also said this was the first time in recent history that Loyola advanced to the semi-finals.
