DU’s National Trial Team had another strong weekend, with two squads participating in two separate tournaments in two different states.
Fordham University School of Law played host to the Judge Paul Joseph Kelley, Jr. Invitational Trial Advocacy Competition. Hoffman Cup Champions Brian Caplan and Ashley Opfer represented DU, coached by DU Alums Chris Brown and Nicole Quintana. Ashley and Brian advanced all the way to the semi-finals. This was the inaugural year of the Kelly Invitational in Fordham, and DU delivered a great performance. Congratulations to Ashley, Brian, and their coaches.
Over the same weekend, Trial Team Coach Sean Olson took a squad to Georgia where they competed in a tournament focused on criminal law. DU’s team once again advanced into the break-out rounds. In DU’s first year in this tournament, Trial Team members Jon Watson, Lindsey Sowder, Kyle McFarlane, and Matthew Broderick did an outstanding job. Congratulations to both teams!
