South Texas College of Law Houston Wins Unprecedented 128th National Advocacy Championship

South Texas College of Law Houston recently extended its dominance in the field of advocacy with its unprecedented 128th national advocacy championship in Chicago at The Chicago Bar Association National Moot Court Competition.

No other law school in the country can claim half as many national championships.

Winning students Will Grubb and Ryan Wallace defeated a team from Loyola Chicago in the semifinals before besting McGeorge in the final round.

Former South Texas top advocates Ryan Cunningham ’17, Avi Moshenberg ‘12, and Ximena Kuri ‘17 assisted Rob Galloway, associate director of Advocacy, and T. Gerald Treece, associate dean and director of Advocacy, in coaching the winning team.

“Our No. 1 ranking in advocacy is due in part to the great foundation laid by our legal research and writing faculty, as well as the individual judging done by many of our professors and alumni in numerous practice rounds leading up to tournaments,” said Treece.
