Before spring break, TJSL sent the team of Allyson Evans, Jasiel Tabares, Noel Heard, and Justin Clayton to the Houston, Texas National BLSA Conference to compete in a mock trial competition sponsored by the Black Law Student Association. The team was coached by Pratik Shah and assisted by James Praley and Vartkes Artinian. The time and guidance by the coach and assistants was sincerely appreciated by all.
I am pleased to report that our team argued well and represented TJSL admirably. Although we did not take home the trophy, we were given encouraging and positive feedback by the judges during the competition. We have grown as a group and look forward to not only making it to Nationals next year, but also, bringing home the gold!
