March 1, 2018

Dysart Taylor Law Clerk Ben Stringer and the rest of his mock trial team at the University of Kansas School of Law is heading to nationals after winning the qualifying rounds of the National Trial Competition this month. Stringer and his team came out ahead of teams representing 11 other law schools from seven states to win Region 9 of the competition, sponsored by the Texas Young Lawyers Association. They will compete in the national rounds April 4-8 in Austin, Texas. KU Law’s national mock trial teams are composed of students who excel in the school’s in-house Mock Trial Competition course. 

“Mock trial has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my time at Green Hall,” Stringer said. “I am excited for one last shot to represent KU Law at nationals and show everyone in Austin we can compete with the best in the country.”
