Memphis Mediation Team Takes 1st Place in Regionals

Two University of Memphis Law School Advocacy in Mediation Teams recently competed in an ABA Regional Competition in Williamsburg, Va. The team of Christopher Martin and Thomas Williams placed first in the competition, while the team of Caroline Giovannetti and Ryan Hagenbrook placed fourth among the 12 teams. The teams were coached by Steve Shields, with help from various members of the Memphis Bar Association's ADR Section. The first place team will continue to Washington D.C. in April for the national competition. The team is raising funds for its trip. Anyone interested in donating may send a check, made payable to the MBA ADR Section, to Linda Warren Seely at 109 N. Main, Suite 200, Memphis 38103.
