UF Trial Team Wins National Criminal Justice Advocacy Competition
The University of Florida Trial Team won the 27th American Bar Association National Criminal Justice Advocacy Competition held March 16-18 in Chicago. UF Law students Neal Cordero (JD 17), Danielle Kaboudi (JD 17), Tristan Montaque (JD 17) and Will Sepulveda (JD 17) competed against 20 law schools from across the country to take home top spot. The team’s big win during the Trial Advocacy Competition held last fall in Puerto Rico secured their entry into the March competition.
This is the first time in the law school’s history that the UF Law Trial Team has won two consecutive national championships within the course of the academic year.
Coaches Tom Farkash (JD 76) and John Kelly (JD 15) assisted the team.
