Pepperdine Caruso Law Trial Team Competes in All Star Bracket Challenge Trial Advocacy Regional Competition 2022
Pepperdine Caruso Law Trial Team advocates MacKenzie Savage, Matt Begoun, Kaitlin Street, and Kelly Mahoney, along with their technician Dillon Garcia, competed in the All Star Bracket Challenge Trial Advocacy Regional Competition on October 8-9. The Caruso Law team prevailed over three of the top programs in the country: UCLA School of Law, Temple University Law, and Stetson University College of Law, and placed second overall.
In addition, Caruso Law third-year student MacKenzie Savage was awarded the honor of Best Advocate at the competition. The competition places the best teams around the nation against each other in head-to-head rounds of trial advocacy. In each round, judges rank the four advocates in order from best to worst. These rankings are combined at the end of the four rounds to determine the best-ranked advocates overall. MacKenzie was only one rank away from a perfect score, earning her the Best Advocate Award for her performance in the competition. Congratulations to MacKenzie!
