Penn Law Mock Trial Team Advances To National Student Trial Advocacy Competition
Congratulations to Julia Simon-Mishel (3L), Jennifer Berman (3L), Niketa Patel (2L), and Brandon Harper (2L), who won the regional round in the American Association For Justice’s Student Trial Advocacy Competition (“STAC”), defeating fourteen teams from law schools across the Northeast.
Penn Law’s team will now advance to compete in the STAC National Championship against the other regional champions from schools across the country. Two of the Penn Law STAC competitors, Niketa Patel and Brandon Harper, were also members of the mock trial team that won the National Championship in the ABA’s Labor & Employment Trial Advocacy Competition this past January. Both Englert, who advises Penn’s Mock Trial Group, served as coach in both competitions
