Segal McCambridge Austin office attorneys, Peter Strelitz and Arturo M. Aviles, participated as judges during the Rocky Mountain Regional semi-final round of the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition in Austin, TX, held on February 9, 2008.

"I was impressed with how well-prepared the law students were and I really enjoyed the time spent judging the competition," stated Mr. Aviles.  "Peter also did a great job serving as head judge and making rulings with aplomb.  All and all, a very rewarding experience and I recommend that attorneys consider serving as judges in a mock trial competition to enhance the experience for the competing law students."

The Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition ("TMMTC") is the largest and most prestigious national student-run trial advocacy competitions sponsored by the Black Law Students Association ("BLSA").  It focuses on promoting excellence for its participants.  A potential competitor of TMMTC must have been an "active member" of his other affiliated BLSA Chapter for at least one calendar year before the qualification deadline for the respective competition.
