Advanced Trial Advocacy

The Stud was one of the students in the Advanced Trial Advocacy who had to present the final case. It was a criminal case based on a civil case, but with a different issue. There were overlaps, of course, and because the standard of proof is higher in criminal cases than in civil cases, the prosecution, of which the Stud was a member, did not obtain a conviction. But neither did the defense win. The "jury" (other class members) hung, with only one person voting to convict.

Afterwards, Judge O'Connell and the visiting judge posed with the prosecution and defense teams.

And now for the regular finals!
