On April 10, 2014, Ryan Crnkovich won the championship round of Professor R. Collin Mangrum’s annual trial competition at Creighton University School of Law.  Ryan, along with his partner Skyler Pearson, competed in seven trials during the course of the competition before being named the tournament champions.  The competition took place over the course of four weeks, with over forty second year law students competing in the tournament.  The winners of each round were selected by third year students on Professor Mangrum’s Advanced Trial Practice Team who compete at both the regional and national level.  Since winning the trial competition, Ryan has accepted an invitation to compete as a member of Professor Mangrum’s Advanced Trial Practice Team next year.
