Congratulations to the top 6 finalists in HGD’s 5th Annual Closing Argument Competition 2019, “In Summation.” The six finalists who will be competing for the top three spots this week are John Banks, Ray Foushee, Sheila Goodwin, Glen McCord, Ashley Smith, and Malia Tartt.
Heninger Garrison Davis takes great pride in this event and the learning opportunity it provides for students attending Cumberland School of Law and Birmingham School of Law. Our goal is to encourage advocacy and reward those law students for advancing their advocacy skills.
Each participant was given a trial problem and asked to present a closing argument before a mock jury that includes judges, lawyers and laypersons. The final round is Thursday, October 3 in the Stephen D. Heninger Moot Court Room in our downtown Birmingham office.
The prizes for the top three are:
1st Place will receive $1,000 & an engraved plaque
2nd Place will receive a check for $750 & an engraved plaque
3rd Place will receive a check for $500 & an engraved plaque
Good luck to all our finalists!
