Much of the most important advocacy happens in courtrooms throughout the country. For many law students, simulating a trial to develop courtroom skills is a vital learning experience.
In mock trial competitions, students are presented a case, then prepare and present the trial from the perspectives of both sides.
The guidance and mentorship students receive from experienced trial lawyers can make the difference for a team hoping to excel on the national level of competition.
The most successful mock trial team coach in Akron Law’s history was alumnus Lawrence (Larry) A. Sutter, III (’89). He was a founding partner of the law firm Sutter O’Connell, where he served as managing partner until his death on March 6.
His 27-year commitment led Akron Law’s team to four national championships and 18 regional titles.
