16th Annual National Trial Advocacy Competition
This fall, and for the first time ever, the Young Lawyers Section will host the 16th Annual National Trial Advocacy Competition. We are excited about the transition and looking forward to another phenomenal year! This competition is designed for teams of four participants, made up of two advocates and two witnesses. Participants will have an opportunity to perfect their courtroom advocacy skills before judges and practitioners.
The competition will be held October 9–11, at the Ingham County Courthouse in Lansing. This year the preliminary rounds will be held on October 9 and 10, and the semi-final and final round will be held on October 11.
