This week Omaha plays host to a regional trial competition sponsored by the American Association for Justice.  Nine law schools from the Midwest region will send a total of 16 teams to compete.  I, along with many of my Omaha attorney colleagues, will serve as performance and presiding judges for the rounds.  This is a big moment in the lives of the participating law students.  It is where they have the opportunity show off the hard work they have put into developing their trial strategies and skills.  As I have said in other posts, watching these students can be a great learning experience for practitioners of all skill levels.  I look forward to participating and, next week, I will send out a report on the good work that I was able to observe.
