UW Law Students Advance to Texas Mock Trial Competition

UW School of Law students Ian Warner and Kristine Duncan were finalists at the Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA) Regional Mock Trial Competition held February 19-21, 2010, in Salem, Oregon. They will advance to and represent the UW at the National Competition in Dallas, Texas, March 25-27, 2010. Law students Jessica Blye and Matt Mensik also participated at the regional competition.

The TYLA competition is one of the oldest and most prestigious U.S. mock trial competitions. Established in 1975 to encourage and strengthen law student advocacy skills, the program is designed to expose students to the nature of trial practice and to serve as a supplement to their education.
