Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law’s trial team will advance to ABA Nationals in Houston in March.

The team of Rosa Brown, Haldon Greenburg, Brandon Held and Dennis McCarthy defeated a team from Emory University at the ABA Regional Competition Feb. 10 in Atlanta.

“I am constantly amazed at the dedication, skill and professionalism of our student advocates,” said Wm. Reece Smith Jr. Distinguished Professor of Law Roberta Flowers, who heads Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Advocacy. “We are looking ahead to a great tournament in Houston.”

Flowers coached the winning team with Thea Kubiak, who won the national championship while still a student at Stetson.

A second student team of Joanna Bilgutay, Nathan Hatcher, Melody James and Eric Ochotorena also competed.

The competition was sponsored by the Texas Young Lawyers Association.
