In the Courtroom of Hulston Hall on September 15, 2013 at 2:00 PM, the top advocates from the 2013 Mock Trial Competition at the University of Missouri School of Law test their advocacy skills before the Honorable Matt. J. Whitworth, Chief Counsel of Litigation for the Missouri Attorney General’s Office Joel Poole, and experienced trial lawyer Angela Drake.
This is a great opportunity to gain exposure to BOA competitions at Mizzou Law. BOA Competitions, such as Mock Trial, help law students develop and hone their oral advocacy skills by having sitting judges and practicing attorneys assess and score competitors’ performance. This serves as a unique and practical learning experience not only for competitors, but for anyone who has the opportunity to hear three accomplished legal professionals provide suggestions and feedback about effective advocacy.
