The Texas Tech school of law school brandished another trophy for their case, securing a 4th American Bar Association championship last weekend.
The third-year law students performed in the National Appellate Advocacy competition in Chicago. It's the third straight year that a Texas Tech law team has claimed one of the top two American Moot Court contests.
The tech law team competed against 26 other teams nationally. Professor Rob Sherwin taught the advocacy team. He said students spend countless hours to perfect their moot court performance.
"The fact that we train at this law school, students who are ready to practice law from the day they graduate and it's a testament to our ability to train students to do what lawyers do," Sherwin said. "And that's effectively advocate for their clients and give the best representation they can give."
"Just the time and feedback they've had to develop their communication skills both in writing and orally is amazing," said dean Darby Dickerson, "And they're goin to be heads and shoulders above most of the law school students graduating this year."
Another team comprised of 2nd-year law students came in second in the competition. This is the 27th national championship for the school.
