RALEIGH — Campbell Law School advocates made it to the final four of the virtual National Black Law Students Association Mock Trial Competition.

Student advocates Jordan Arroyo, Daisha Barnes, Brandon Irabor and Kathleen Miller competed via Zoom in the National Competition this past weekend after being finalists in the Regional Competition. The team was coached by Campbell Law alumna Kimberly Dixon and Terrie Nelson. During the national competition, the student advocates received high praise from the judges and beat advocates from Florida State University law school, the regional champion to advance. 

In March 2019, Campbell Law advocates won the Constance Baker Motley National Trial Competition hosted by the NBLSA. That team was also coached by Dixon.
