Law Students Continue Excellence in Trial Advocacy

A team of Duquesne University Law Students won the Student Trial Advocacy Regional Competition sponsored by the American Association for Justice (AAJ) in Pittsburgh Feb. 27 to March 1.

Third-year students Lisa Barnett, Brock McCandless, Megan Lehman and Linda Obioha defeated teams from the University of Arkansas and the University of North Carolina in the final round. 

In addition, a team of second-year Duquesne law students made it to the final round of the same competition. Team members Jessica Barson, Max Petrunya, Patrick Sullivan and Michaelene Weimer were narrowly defeated by a team from the University of North Carolina.

The winning team from Duquesne will now compete at the national AAJ competition on April 2 in West Palm Beach.
