Congratulations to third-year students LeAnna McMenamin (left) and Alexa Kluska (right) for their team victory  in the 7th Annual Judge J. Lyles Glenn, Jr. and Terrell L. Glenn, Sr. Mock Trial Competition.  As the winning team, they received the D. Reece Williams III Award presented by the American Board of Trial Advocates. 

McMenamin also won the Robert McCormick Figg Jr. Trial Advocacy Award, presented to the top individual advocate in the competition by the South Carolina Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Judge Joe Anderson presided over the final trial, which was held on September 25, 2015. A group of distinguished lawyers served as scoring judges. 

Congratulations also to the second-place team of Morgan Barham and Enoch Hicks, who excelled throughout and made the final competition a very close one.
