“This competition is known for its brutal cuts,” said Professor Kristen Adams, director, Dispute Resolution Board. “All four of our advocates – Jess, Mel, Mary Grace, and Naomi – did a fantastic job, and we are exceptionally proud of their excellent work, and thankful to Coach Amy for being a fantastic mentor and coach.”

Naomi Robertson and Mary Grace Henley will represent Stetson at Nationals the second weekend in April. 

Amy A. Catledge, JD ’02, is an attorney with The Ruth Law Team. She has coached students at Stetson as an Advocacy Skills Trainer for two decades and said she enjoys watching the law students grow and learn as they prepare to enter the legal field themselves.
