Judge John C. Coughenour Best Oral Advocate Award Reception
Thursday, May 12, 5 pm, Room 115

The UW School of Law will host a mock trial competition presided over by Judge John C. Coughenour to determine the Best Oral Advocate award recipient. The mock trial will take place from 1 to 5 pm in Room 138. The John C. Coughenour Best Oral Advocate Award was created in 2007 by family, friends, former law clerks and colleagues of Judge Coughenour to honor his move to senior status on the U.S. District Court and to celebrate his twenty-five years of service on the federal bench. This annual award honors Judge Coughenour’s dedication to improving the quality of trial practice, his commitment to trial lawyering and his many years teaching trial advocacy at the UW School of Law. Please register to attend the trial competition, reception, or both!
