Duquesne Law team named AAJ Regional Champions
Congratulations to our Duquesne Law team who became the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Trial Competition Regional Champions during the weekend of March 12.
Our Dukes defeated Penn, Notre Dame, and Villanova, 9-0, in the preliminary rounds. Then the team defeated Cleveland State in the semi-finals, then won against the same Villanova team in the final round (trying the other side of the case). Their win clenched their spot in the AAJ Nationals from April 8-10.
The winning team consists of Abbey Carey (2L), River Icenhour (2L), Nakib Kabir (3L), Tori Lyons, (2L) and their alumni coaches, Taylor Corn L'18, Anthony Hassey L'17 and Autumn Pividori-Kitson L'14. Congratulations!
