Law Students Takes Second Place at Stetson National Pre-Trial Competition



  • Team: Daniel Waters ('17), Julianna Battenfield ('17), Alison Haefner ('17), Elizabeth Berry ('18), and Justin Burch ('17)
  • Coach: Professor James Metcalfe


  • Second place in the competition out of sixteen teams, coming out ahead of teams from law schools such as University of Miami School of Law, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and Texas Tech University School of Law.
  • Second Best Brief in the competition for Prosecution
  • Second Best Brief for Combined Memoranda.

“Regent Law strives to develop three general legal skills: writing, advocacy and strenuous academics,” said Daniel Waters ('17). “This competition required excellence in all three of those areas.” Waters said his favorite part of competing is proving his team’s great writing and advocating skills.

“Consistently at all competitions, judges say [we] are currently better than many lawyers they see in their courts,” said Waters. “That means the Regent Law Advocacy program is training lawyers who are academically and experientially on-par with many top 100 advocacy programs.”

According to Waters, the team will assign 2L students to their Spring Semester 2017, and will continue to prepare for competitions at the regional and national levels.
