Jefferson City, Mo. - Attorney General Chris Koster said today his office is proud to host the inaugural Attorney General's Cup competition in Jefferson City November 11 through November 13.
The Attorney General's Cup is a mock trial competition among Missouri's four law schools - University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Washington University, and St. Louis University. Teams from all four schools will compete for custody of the traveling trophy.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for law students from across Missouri to hone their courtroom skills and learn how to better prepare themselves for courtroom practice following admission to the Bar," Koster said.
The competition will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday and at 8:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. On Friday afternoon at 1:15 p.m., Koster will speak to the participants about some of his own trial experiences.
