INTRODUCING THE FUTURE OF LITIGATION

I am thrilled to announce that after 25 years, my dream of having my own mock courtroom has finally become a reality! We now have a 58-person, full scale courtroom. With this, we aim at gaining critical case intelligence by trying every case, before we try every case. Equally exciting is our plan to open the courtroom to law schools near and far for regional and national moot court competitions.

It may have taken a quarter century to get here, but knowing you pushed through the difficult times and never gave up on your dream makes it all worthwhile.
