Malone also won the award for Best Advocate.
Associate Dean for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Professor of Law Simone Rose praised the team members on their accomplishment saying, “Congratulations everyone — Go Wake!”
According to the UNC Law website, the competition is named for its sponsors, Kilpatrick Townsend, and held each January at the University of North Carolina School of Law for first-year students from UNC and other North Carolina law schools, and is organized by the Broun National Trial Team.
Kilpatrick offers a unique chance for first-year law students to gain first-hand trial advocacy experience in a friendly, open setting. Though inherently competitive, the competition is deigned to be an accessible, low-stress learning opportunity for any student interested in litigation, regardless of their experience level. Accordingly, the competition focuses on development of trial skills rather than knowledge of the law.
