ATLANTA -- The Georgia State University College of Law Student Trial Lawyers Association's first mock arbitration team made a spectacular showing at the American Bar Association's Regional Arbitration Competition held November 13-14 at the University of Northern Kentucky's Chase Law School.
The case involved a wrongful discharge (whistleblower) employment law problem. Team members Lisa Bobb and Andrew Hagenbush represented the Claimant, while Madeleine Peake and Wesley Starrett represented the Respondent. Professor Doug Yarn served as team coach.
On Saturday, Georgia State received the highest overall score among twelve teams. On Sunday, Georgia State and Northern Kentucky emerged as the best two teams, meaning both will compete in the national competition January 21-22 in Chicago.
