Both of the University’s mock trial squads competed at the 3rd annual Emerald City Open at the University of Washington during the weekend of December 1-2. The teams earned 5th place out of 20 teams, both squads had winning records, and four UP students were recognized with awards for outstanding performances. Those students were Hilary Simpson, Outstanding Witness; Charity Taylor, Outstanding Attorney; Emma England, Outstanding Attorney; and Jordan Jones, Outstanding Attorney. Jordan Jones received a perfect score in the rankings, and the UP teams were the most decorated in the tournament.
