Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, and event co-sponsor Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP are pleased to announce the 16 law schools that have been selected to participate in Loyola Law School's 12th Annual National Civil Trial Competition (NCTC), which will be held Nov. 8-10, 2013, in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. The 16 schools are: Baylor Law School; Chicago-Kent College of Law; Duquesne University School of Law; Earle Mack School of Law, Drexel University; Loyola University of Chicago School of Law; University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law; Pepperdine University School of Law; Samford University, Cumberland School of Law; Southwestern Law School; St. Mary's University School of Law; Stetson University College of Law; Suffolk University Law School; Syracuse University College of Law; University of Akron School of Law; University of California, Berkeley School of Law; and Washington University School of Law, St. Louis.

The NCTC (www.lls.edu) is an annual competition that is open to all ABA-accredited law schools. The NCTC was created in 2002 by Professor Susan Poehls, director of trial advocacy programs at Loyola Law School. Each year, law student litigants are given the opportunity to argue a case in front of a panel of judges consisting of prestigious members of the Southern California Bar. The members include partners and associates from various Los Angeles civil litigation firms, including co-sponsor Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP (greene-broillet.com). Greene Broillet & Wheeler has co-sponsored the event since its inception.

More than 50 law schools across the country apply to compete in the NCTC. Only 16 schools are chosen, and only 64 law student litigants will argue the case. Each school will have a team of four students acting as advocates/witnesses to perform opening statements, conduct direct-and-cross-examination of expert and lay witnesses, make closing arguments, and argue objections based on the Federal Rules of Evidence.

The preliminary elimination rounds will begin on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Santa Monica Courthouse. The semi-final and final rounds will be argued at Loyola Law School on Saturday, Nov. 9.

"Sixteen top law schools will compete in the NCTC this year," stated Professor Poehls. "We are very proud of the selection, and look forward to the competition."

"The NCTC gives competing students the opportunity to practice their skills as future attorneys," said Timothy J Wheeler, Partner at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP and an alumnus of Loyola Law School. "We are happy to support such a great competition."
