Congratulations to the UNT Dallas COL students Fernando Leal-Calandra, Chase Miller, Anthony Lyons and Aubrey Eyrolles for their First Place win in the inaugural DFW Metroplex Mock Trial Competition! Fernando Leal-Calandra was also awarded Best Advocate for the entire competition! Coached by Profs. Tony Kolenc and Wes Moore, our UNT Dallas COL team outperformed the competition. Also, congratulations to UNT Dallas COL students Anjali Rana, Jon McCurley, Jessica Alvarez and Hamza Ahmad, along with Profs. Shmyla Alam and Brian Owsley for competing in the semi-finals round. Aubrey Eyrolles is also blazing a path, as she is a part time student – one of the first to participate in an external advocacy competition. It was clear from all of the rounds that both teams were incredibly dedicated and determined. The semi-final round was particularly tough since both of our UNT teams faced each other – talk about the talent facing the talent!
