CSU|LAW 3Ls Dana Bye and Noah Mumbach finished in the top 16 teams at the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition held April 6 and 7 in Philadelphia. They were the first CSU|LAW Moot Court team to advance to the National Competition in more than 15 years and the only Ohio law school to be represented at Nationals. Dana also took home a 9th Best Advocate Award for her oral argument performance during the competition. A total of 178 teams competed nationwide with only 24 qualifying for Nationals.

The team is coached by CSU|LAW Moot Court team alum, Dean Williams ’05.

The CSU|LAW Mock Trial Team participated in the National rounds of the AAJ Mock Trial Tournament in Chicago April 3 - 7, marking the first time in CSU|LAW history that the mock trial team made it to Nationals. The competition consisted of the top 20 teams out of 160 from across the Country that won their regional rounds.  

The CSU|LAW team of 2Ls Megan Porter, Zach MacMillan, Lina Girgis, and Koby Adu-Poku defeated South Texas and Campbell in the qualifying rounds, earning them the right to advance to a field of eight teams in the quarterfinals. Once in the quarterfinals, they were paired with the reigning back-to-back champs UCLA, in which CSU ultimately lost by a single point.

Notably, the majority of mock trial students that make it to Nationals are veteran 3L’s, whereas the CSU foursome are 2L’s will have an extra year of eligibility to defend their regional title. 

The mock trial team is coached by Adjunct Faculty Julian Emerson and Jed Chedid ’21.
