For the second year in row, two Kline School of Law teams competed in a regional final of the Texas Young Lawyers Association National Trial Competition (NTC), the largest law school mock trial competition in the country.
Grace Grimes, JD ’22, and Theresa Topping, JD ’22, were crowned regional champions and will compete at the national competition in Fort Worth, Texas in late March 2022. Jennifer DeLongis, JD ’23, Beatrice Schaffer, JD ’23, and Christa Tomasulo, JD ’22, were finalists.
To reach the finals, the Kline Law teams defeated competitors from the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, Widener University Commonwealth Law School, the Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law, and Penn State Dickinson Law.
This marked the eighth time that Kline Law won the regional NTC championship in as many years. The teams were coached by Trial Competition Director Phil Pasquarello, JD ’18, Jessica Falkenstein, JD ’18, and Najah Jacobs, JD ’18.
