The Temple Trial Team shone in the regional round of the 2015 American Association for Justice Student Trial Advocacy Competition, bringing home Semi-Final honors for the second time in a weekend.

Temple Law School was represented in the competition by third-year law students Dan Assaraf, Stephanie Lutz, Frank Mangiaracina, and Noel Walton. Coaches Samantha Jones LAW ’11 and Mia Perez LAW ’06, “were tremendously proud of the team, particularly in the hard-fought last round,” said Jones. “They were passionate, prepared, and professional advocates, and they are going to make fantastic lawyers.”

The Student Trial Advocacy Competition is hosted by the American Association for Justice, which “seeks to inspire excellence in trial advocacy through training and education for both law students and practicing attorneys.”
