Trial Advocacy Victory. The Chicago-Kent Trial Advocacy Team, for an impressive fifth straight year, won the 1999 Regional Competition of the National Trial Competition. The team of Pavlina Kochankovska, Michelle Rodriguez, and Matthew Sobolewski won the votes of every judge in each of the four rounds of the competition and defeated teams from the University of Wisconsin, the University of Illinois, Notre Dame, and -- in the final round -- Loyola of Chicago. The competition was held February 4-6 at the DuPage County Judicial Center. The team's victory means that they now advance to the final rounds of the competition, to be held March 18-20 in San Antonio, Texas. Congratulations to the team members and their coaches, David Erikson and Justice Warren Wolfson. Congratulations also to the team of Charlotte Cluverius, Sharese Shields, and Amy Wilson, who did not advance in the competition but argued ably and represented the school well.
