After continually advancing in competitions, including three national trial competitions this past spring, UMKC School of Law was invited to participate in one of the most significant tournaments in the nation. The Baylor Law School Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition is an invitation-only mock trial tournament where the best advocates from the top 16 trial advocacy schools compete for the honor of Top Gun. Blake D. Smith (J.D. ’17), with the assistance of Alison Stephens (J.D. ’17), placed third as a semifinalist.
