Law Students Reach Semi-Finals in Mock Trial Competition
Six Duquesne University law students recently reached the semi-finals at the National Trial Competition Regional Championship in Philadelphia, where they competed against law schools from Penn, Villanova, Dickinson and Rutgers, among others.
Duquesne’s two teams included Lauren Applegate, Alicia Nocera and Lyle Dresbold, and Kate Charlton, Amie Mihalko and Adrienne Sadosky. Each team advanced to the semi-finals of the twin-bracketed tournament, where they defeated Dickenson and Villanova, respectively, before losing to host school Temple in the finals.
This marks the seventh consecutive year that teams from Duquesne have made the finals or semi-finals of this competition. The Trial Advocacy Program at the Law School is directed by Professor Michael Streib. Coaches include Law Professor Bruce Antkowiak.
