Campbell Law advocates once again competed in the Lone Star Classic Mock Trial Challenge on Oct. 17-19, 2019, at the Saint Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, Texas.

Second-year students Daniel Nelson, Macy Stutts, Robyn Sanders and Matthew Hobbs ended their impressive run as national finalists  coming in second out of 24 teams. The Campbell Law team was coached by 2019 Top Gun Champion Tatiana Terry ´19.

“What’s even more impressive is this was the first competition for all four advocates,” explained Dean J. Rich Leonard. “Looking forward to seeing what this talented group does in the future.”

In the previous four years, Campbell Law has finished in the Final Four twice.

The Lone Star Classic is an invitational mock trial competition hosted by Saint Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio.  With 24 individually-selected advocacy schools, the tournament is considered one of the most competitive mock trial tournaments in the country.

The Lone Star Classic seeks to develop students as successful litigators in the criminal field by having the student advocates try a closely-contested criminal case.  Incorporation of viable case theories and the use of forensic evidence are hallmarks of the competition.
