Trial Team Retains Regional Championship

NTC Champs Feb 2013

This past weekend, Temple's National Trial Team defended its NTC Regional Championship of the National Trial Competition at the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia. It was Temple's 25th regional championship in 27 years of competition. The members of the championship team are Caroline Power (2L) and James Price (3L). Third Circuit Chief Judge Theodore A. McKee presided at the final round. In the double bracketed competition, a second team of Dan Theveny (3L) and Britt Walden (2L) dropped a highly competitive semi-final contest on a split ballot.

Twenty-two teams from eleven law schools representing Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania competed. The Team travels to Texas on April 3 to compete for the National Trial Championship against the twenty-four winners and runners-up from the twelve other regional contests. The teams are coached by Professor Jen Bretschneider, Director of Experiential Programs, Alex Gosfield, Esq. ('08)(Chester County DA's Office) and Professor Edward Ohlbaum.  The tournament was sponsored by Temple's LL.M. in Trial Advocacy Alumni Association and the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, directed by Marissa Boyers Bluestine and adminstrated by Mary Beth Wilson.
