Campbell Law School third-year advocates Jennifer Garcia and Melvin Holland, and second-year students Niayai Lavien and Tia Overway competed at the Regional Constance Baker Motley National Black Law Students Association on Feb. 25-27 in Atlanta, Georgia. The team of Garcia and Holland finished in the semi-final rounds of the competition.

“This competition marks our competitive advocacy program’s return to in-person advocacy competitions,” said Director of Competitive Advocacy Tatiana Terry ’19. “As our students competed in-person the competition instituted a mask requirement about a week before our students left for Atlanta,. During rounds, competitors were required to wear masks unless they were conducting their individual portions of the trial.”

The team was proudly coached by alumna Kimberly Dixon ’15.

“Please join me in congratulating all of these outstanding student advocates for their success, dedication and hard work in representing Campbell Law,” Terry said.
