With almost inarticulable pride, American Association of Justice (AAJ) Coaches Matt Breeding (JD ’06) and Katie King (JD ’12) announced on Monday, March 14, that Wake Forest School of Law has won the AAJ Regional Championship for the second year in a row. And they did so by narrowly defeating … Wake Forest.
“That’s right: the top two teams at this year’s regional tournament were both from our beloved law school,” the coaches said.
Just after 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 13, 2016, the two talented trial teams from Wake Forest Law met in the Wake County Courthouse for the final round of the AAJ Student Trial Advocacy Regional Competition (STAC) held in Raleigh, North Carolina, over the weekend. Wake Forest’s first team, led by overall captain Joshua Bussen (JD ’16) won a hard-fought battle against its most formidable rival, Wake Forest’s second team, led by captain Daniel Galyon (JD ’16). The round could not have been closer, with Bussen’s team winning two judges to one over Galyon’s squad.
