Faulkner Law Students Compete in the South-Regional BLSA Competition
Faulkner University Jones School of Law students recently competed in the annual South-Regional Black Law Students Association (BLSA) trial and moot court competition. The annual event was held January 19th-24th in Durham, North Carolina.
Faulkner Law’s trial team was comprised of Synetria Jones, Tyler Morgan, Lakia Scott, and Jasmyne Webb-Crimiel. Shenika Lee and Lowell Moore represented Faulkner Law in the moot court competition. Joe Lester, Faulkner Law’s Director of Advocacy, coached the teams. Professors Elyce Morris and Jerome Dees accompanied the students to the competition.
The trial team finished the competition as quarter-finalists, and Webb-Crimiel received the Overall Best Advocate Award. Three of the students were selected to the regional planning committee: Webb-Crimiel as the trial competition coordinator; Lee as the moot competition coordinator; and Jones as the communication director.
“The South-Regional BLSA Competition was an incredible event,” said Scott. “Even though we were snowed-in – and some of our coaches and judges were snowed-out – we had a wonderful time and represented Faulkner Law well. Because our teams were comprised of mostly second-year law students, I am confident that these students will lead the way at next year’s event.”
