Trial Advocacy and Moot Court Team Support

Culverhouse Law’s Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Teams achieved unprecedented success in 2018! The advocacy program boasts more than 20 teams allowing students to travel and compete nationwide. These programs give students the opportunity to apply and enhance the skills they have learned in the classroom. On average, a team will incur $5,000 in expenses per year related to team travel, lodging, and transportation. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to fund one team’s expenses for the following year.

 

Below are some highlights of individual teams.

 

Cameron Rentschler, Jordan LapPorta, Carl Madden, and Karman Gaines won first place at the Southeast Regional of the American Association for Justice Student Trial Advocacy Competition in Birmingham, Alabama.
