We offer our congratulations to the students from Berkeley Law for winning a national trial advocacy competition this past weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sponsored by the American Bar Association’s Section of Labor and Employment Law, the competition introduces law students to the challenges and rewards of employment and labor litigation.

Lieff Cabraser attorney Katherine Benson served as one of the coaches of the Berkeley team, assisting the students in developing their trial advocacy skills.

In the photo, left to right, are Benson, Berkeley law students Stephanie Llanes, Salah Hawkins, DeCarol Davis, and Jerel Dawson, and Coach Ivor Samson.
