Recently, Jessica Pulliam, Law Clerk for Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. helped her MC Law team take home the title for the 9th Annual Stetson National Pretrial Competition. The competition was held October 13th – 16th in Gulfport, Florida. Top teams around the country were invited to compete, and this was their first year to win! MC Law competed in 2 preliminary rounds and then advanced to the semi-finals and, ultimately, the finals. They defeated Regent University School of Law in the final round. The competition was made up of oral argument section and an evidentiary hearing. Jessica and her co-counsel represented the defense.
