Send us to the Mid-Atlantic Mock Trial Competition! A Project of Designated Funds

Send us to the Mid-Atlantic Mock Trial Competition!

The Francis King Carey School of Law's Thurgood Marshall National Trial Team (TMNTT) has been selected to compete in the Mid-Atlantic Black Law Students Association (MABLSA) Mock Trial Competition on February 7-11, 2018 in Portsmouth, VA. Every year, the TMNTT has performed exceptionally well in this regional competition. Our goal this year is to continue that legacy. However, in order to reach our goal, we need your support through a tax-deductible contribution.

In 2009, the TMNTT was founded with the support of alumni, faculty, and the local bar association. Through intense training and coursework, our students have placed in the MABLSA competition finals and advanced to compete against law schools from around the country in the National Black Law Student Association (NBLSA) national mock trial competition. On several occasions, our students have also received "Best Advocate" awards at competition. In 2017, the team won 2nd place at the MABLSA competition in Pittsburgh, PA, and advanced to the sought after NBLSA competition held in Houston, TX.

We are confident that with your generosity through a tax-deductible contribution will help fund our travel and hotel accommodations to the regional and potentially, the national competition. We can further not just our legacy of exceptional performance but our commitment to providing deserving and hardworking students with invaluable trial advocacy skills!
