Barry University School of Law’s Trial Team recently earned an impressive first place victory at the 8th Annual InVino Veritas Mock Trial Competition hosted by the Golden Gate University School of Law and the GCU Litigation Center.
In late October, the team competed against sixteen teams from schools across the nation, including Florida State University School of Law, and University of Richmond School of Law in the preliminaries, Drexel University School of Law in the semifinals, and the University of Denver in the finals.
Coached by Barry Law alumni Alyssa Kersey and Michael Cahill, the team comprised of Cody Coven, Scher Guzzo, Austin Auletta, and Quanejha Erwin. In addition, Scher Guzzo won best overall advocate, and Quanejha Erwin received the award for best closing argument. The InVino Veritas Competition is the second appearance in the finals arena for Barry Law’s trial team this month.
The week prior, another Barry Law trial team, coached by Jordan Ostroff and Alen Trobradovic, advanced to the final rounds at the University of Florida’s 5th National Trial Advocacy Tournament by defeating the University of Mississippi School of Law in the semi-finals. The Barry Law competitors, Jacqueline Alonso, Zachary Brewer-Kirby, Benjamin Hamilton, Jakairo Campusano, and Catherine McCabe, secured second place against St. Thomas University School of Law. In addition, Jacqueline Alonso won an award for best cross examination.
