Jacksonville, Fla., May 2, 2017 – For the ninth year in a row, Spohrer & Dodd held a closing argument competition at Florida Coastal School of Law with the student winners receiving cash scholarships from the firm. The competition was held in the law school’s courtroom and the top eight students from the school’s mock trial team competed for the chance to win.

Each of the students gave a ten-minute closing argument on a fact pattern provided by the attorneys from Spohrer & Dodd. A panel of judges, comprised of practicing attorneys from law firms throughout Jacksonville, scored the students on their arguments and chose a first, second and third place winner. Spohrer & Dodd attorneys did not participate in the judging process. Taking first place honors was Zachary Register, Nathan Watters was the second-place winner and in third place was Jamesha Mitchell.

“An effective closing argument can be a major factor in the outcome of a case,” said Steven Browning, attorney with Spohrer & Dodd. “Each student put a lot of hard work into their argument and were very deserving of the scholarship prize. I look forward to seeing them excel in the courtroom.”

The Florida Coastal School of Law Mock Trial Team is made up of a group of law students trained in the art of trial-level litigation. Acceptance on the team is based on the student’s ability and talent. Each of the team members is trained on proper courtroom demeanor, presentation abilities and legal reasoning. The mock team trial members also represent Florida Coastal in mock trial competitions with students from law schools across the nation.
