This fall the Young Lawyers Section will host the 19th Annual National Trial Advocacy Competition (NTAC). We are excited and look forward to another amazing 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 November 2–4, at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, in Detroit. This year the preliminary rounds will be held on November 2 and 3, and the semi-final and final round will be held on November 4.
