Adler Pollock & Sheehan is proud to have sponsored the American Mock Trial Association’s inaugural Providence Regional Tournament, hosted by Brown University on February 15-16, 2020. Thanks to the efforts of AP&S and Brown University, over 200 undergraduate students – representing 14 universities and colleges across the New England region – were able to showcase their critical thinking and public speaking skills while demonstrating their knowledge of legal practices and procedures. Assessing this next generation of lawyers was an exceptional judging pool that included Rhode Island Superior Court justices, federal prosecutors and defenders, as well as several members of AP&S’s litigation team.
AP&S Associate Michael D’Ippolito III serves as the head coach of Brown University’s nationally ranked mock trial program. Michael also serves on the Board of Directors for the American Mock Trial Association, which provides a forum for over 7,000 undergraduate students from over 400 universities and colleges to engage in intercollegiate mock trial competitions across the country.
