We are so thrilled to have current Regent Law students as well as alumni serving the community by participating in the Marvel Mock Trial Competition, co-sponsored by the Norfolk & Portsmouth Bar Association and Norfolk Public Schools. The annual mock trial competition helps middle school students learn about the justice system and gives them an opportunity to interact with attorneys and police officers in an age-appropriate, friendly setting.

This year, four Regent law students volunteered, with one, Madeline Jones, sitting on the executive board committee. Kimberly Phillips, founding partner of Phillips & Peters, PLLC is the head of the Mock Trial executive board. Other alumni served throughout the competition. This will be the last year that Ms. Phillips organizes the event.

A huge thanks to the sponsors and our alumni for their participation in this event!
