Texas opened early voting on Tuesday, October 13.  Although this early voting was extended to accommodate turnout in light of the special circumstances, Governor Abbott refused to expand who was allowed to vote by mail.  More recently, he limited the number of boxes for voters to deliver mail-in ball to one per county.  In Harris County where Houston is, that means there is only one box for a county about the size of Rhode Island

Inaugural TK Mock Trial Winners
Tuesday, October 27, 2020

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!

Our law students recently participated in the Dallas County Expunctions Expo. Attorneys and law students, under the direction of supervising attorneys, volunteered to file expunction petitions for qualifying individuals. This year over 1000 applicants signed-up to participate. The Expo is a sponsored by the District Attorney, The District Clerk and the Public Defender. The expo had a profound effect on our students. Below is a reflection from the experience.
