School of Law Trial Team

The Daily Record, The Baltimore Examiner – The National Trial Team at the School of Law won the National Institute for Trial Advocacy’s 17th annual Tournament of Champions. "This is the crowning-glory achievement of our advocacy program," said Jerome Diese, JD, professor at the School of Law and the team’s coach. "We all hugged each other and danced and jumped," said Jason Downs, third-year student, of their win. "The thing about trial team is you’re picking up real-life, practical, hands-on skills that you don’t get by being in a classroom," said Jessica Butkera, third-year student. "It’s a pretty big deal," said Rachel Simmons, third-year student who won Top Advocate honors. "Not many Tier I law schools also have the top trial advocacy team." Sig Libowitz, third-year student, said the win "took teamwork, talent, oral skills and a gut-check."
