McGeorge continued its remarkable run of regional success in the National Trial Competition (NTC) when Selena Farnesi and James Bradford scored a victory in the Region 13 tournament in February.

The team will represent the law school in the national finals of the prestigious 40-year-old event, scheduled March 11 to 15 in Houston. Their regional win marks the seventh year in the past decade that a McGeorge team has advanced to the championship finals.

Twenty-six teams from around the country will compete in the finals of the NTC, which is sponsored by the Texas Young Lawyers Association. Yale is the defending national champion. The McGeorge team was coached by prominent Sacramento attorneys — and former McGeorge trial team stars — Jeff Schaff, '10, and Alan Donato, '09, both of whom won trips to the NTC nationals when they competed as students.
