"The Premiere" mock trial competition, hosted by UCLA Law in Los Angeles, CA.

November 4, 2023

TMSL was represented at "The Premiere" mock trial competition, hosted by UCLA Law in Los Angeles, CA. The competition is unique in that it is a national invitational tournament for first-time competitors only, and the rounds are judged by mock trial coaches from other teams. Our team was composed of Sylvia Harmon (3L), Channing Christophe (3L), Monique Williams (2L), and Julianne Navarro (2L). Our coaches were Professor Marcus Esther (c/o '18) and Attorney Marcus Fifer. 

After four rounds of competition, TMSL finished 4th out of 20 teams! Additionally, Sylvia and Julianne were awarded as two of the competition's Top Advocates. And if that weren't enough, our coaches received a Best Judge award for their insightful feedback and fairness while judging other competitors!

Please join me in congratulating these spectacular individuals on their success! I'm extremely proud of their effort and representation.
