A second place finish in the Rocky Mountain Regional of the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial competition sends St. Mary’s University School of Law’s Black Law Student Association Mock Trial Team on to the national round of the competition March 10 -14 in Boston.
The St. Mary’s team is made up of Bridgette Clay, Kristin Kaye, Christian Johnson and Lauren Cadillac. Veteran competitors Clay and Johnson were members of the 2009 National Runner-up team in the same contest.
During last months’ regional round at Louisiana State University, St. Mary’s team faced and defeated teams from the University of Tulsa College of Law, Texas Wesleyan Law School and Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law. The team fell short of the University of Texas in the regional championship.
The competition is hosted yearly by the National Black Law Students Association. The winners of the six regional contests meet at the national championship held in conjunction with the organization’s national convention.
