Loyola Law School and Event Sponsor Greene Broillet & Wheeler Announce Law Schools That Will Compete November 11-13 in Its 9th Annual National Civil Trial Competition Held in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

Loyola Law School and event sponsor Greene Broillet & Wheeler are pleased to announce the law schools selected to compete in the 9th annual National Civil Trial Competition (NCTC) which will be held November 11 through 13, 2010 in Los Angeles. The sixteen schools are: Cumberland School of Law; Loyola Law School Los Angeles; Loyola University of Chicago School of Law; University of Maryland School of Law; University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law; Pepperdine University School of Law; Southern Methodist University; Stetson University College of Law; St. Johns University School of Law; Stanford Law School; Syracuse University College of Law; Temple University Beasley School of Law; University of Akron School of Law; University at Buffalo Law School; University of Wisconsin Law School; and Washington University St. Louis School of Law.

Created by Loyola Law School Prof. Susan Poehls in 2002, the NCTC ( is an nvitational tournament which gives second and third year law students an opportunity to showcase their trial advocacy skills in a civil litigation context. Greene Broillet & Wheeler ( has sponsored the event since its inception.

With more than 40 law schools vying to participate this year, the NCTC is regarded as one of the top-tier law school trial advocacy competitions in the United States. Each school will send a four-member team and is required to argue both sides of the case, as well as to role-play as parties and witnesses. The case file this year will be a medical malpractice action based on the death of a celebrity's parent who was undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Prominent members of the Los Angeles civil bench and bar volunteer their time to judge the NCTC competition. The preliminary elimination rounds will begin on Thursday, November 11 in downtown Los Angeles at the U.S. Federal Courthouse. The semi-final and final rounds will be argued at Loyola Law School on Saturday, November 13.

"Now, more than ever, it is important for law students to key in on their strengths if they are to succeed in the legal profession," stated Prof. Susan Poehls. "With early elimination rounds taking place in Federal court and oral arguments being presented before experienced judges and nationally respected trial warriors, the NCTC provides these students with an opportunity to try out their skills as future litigators in a real world environment."

"Trial advocacy is about instinct, passion and attention to detail," said Timothy J. Wheeler, managing partner of Greene Broillet & Wheeler and an alumnus of Loyola Law School, "and successful litigators spend a lifetime honing their trial skills. In an abbreviated amount of time, the beauty of Loyola's NCTC is that it gives law students an opportunity to truly explore trial advocacy from all points of view and serves as an inspiration in helping them to define their own style as future litigators."
