It was my first trial. The issues tried included our client’s claims of breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraud; and the defendant’s counterclaims and many, many, affirmative defenses. The trial lasted 5 days. Did we get a favorable verdict you ask? Yes! When it was all said and done, I reflected on what I had learned. And what I learned is that I already learned what I learned. Make sense? Well, what I mean to say is that everything I was taught and practiced repeatedly in the TMSL Mock Trial program proved to be exactly what occurs in a courtroom and what is necessary of an attorney trying a case. To start, the skills of effective advocacy, such as vocalizing/articulating rather than just speaking, purposeful courtroom movement, captivating the jury by telling a story, and avoiding “white-out” through preparation, all played out in the trial just as they are taught in the TMSL program. More specifically, the recent trial was a review of the four fundamental principles of good trial advocacy that the TMSL Mock Trial program taught me: knowledge, technique, art, and __________ (I’ll let Jerry speak to the fourth “circle” as he calls it, as I know it is sort of a finale for him). Knowledge: We knew more about the law and the facts than the other side. This obviously proved helpful. Even more helpful was the fact that we knew more about the defendant’s own trial exhibits than they did. Technique: A. Control the Witness The TMSL Mock Trial program taught me to control the witness. I was taught to use short, concise questions on cross-examination as one method. Well, to be honest, in this trial at least, most of the questions asked on cross-examination were not so short. The program also taught me to control the witness by creating blocks of questions so that instead of saying to a witness “We will get to that topic in a little while,” you can go with the witness to any topic, without hesitation. This certainly played out in the trial. B. Listen to the Witness Listen to the witness. During my time in the TMSL program I can’t count how many times I heard the following: “You will get the best stuff from what the witness offers you if you just listen.” At the recent trial, when Jerry asked the defendant about the settlement payment he (defendant) made to an individual in the underlying lawsuit, the defendant answered, probably inadvertently, “Pay who?”. The “pay who” answer presented an opportunity to make the defendant look really silly because every juror at that point, and the defendant himself, knew who the “who” was. Because Jerry was listening, rather than simply waiting to ask his next question, he recognized the opportunity and capitalized on the moment, which turned out to be one of the best moments of the trial. C. The Doodlebug The TMSL Mock trial program preaches the Doodlebug theory, which states that a witness curls up and resists when he or she senses a threat. So, according to the doodlebug, you should design your cross-examination so that the witness does not know where you are going in order to box them in and obtain a favorable answer before they curl up. The doodlebug quite possibly won the case!!! It was Defendant’s exhibit 200-and-something, an exhibit that defendant’s counsel was likely unaware of, at least as to its potential significance. Again, knowledge! It wasn’t until testimony was solicited regarding the defendant’s sympathy and desire to apologize to a woman he had wronged that the exhibit would cause significant damage and be of most beneficial use. Enter the doodlebug. Instead of throwing the exhibit in the defendants face right off the bat, we gave him no hint of where we were going and instead waited for the testimony to develop. After the defendant offered up the needed testimony on direct examination, saying that he wanted to apologize, and then again through his counsel’s closing argument, Jerry, in the very last minute of his rebuttal, told the jury: “You haven’t seen this yet, but you are going to want to write this exhibit number down.” The exhibit was an email wherein the defendant titled his email comments “apology tactic” and went on to describe the pros and cons of making an apology to the woman. Jerry proceeded to completely discredit the defendant by reading the exhibit. The defendant and his counsel did not see it coming because we never let them know we were going there! By using the doodlebug method, in this instance not just as a cross-examination technique, but as an overall trial technique, I sincerely believe it made the difference and got us a favorable verdict. While the recent trial might have taught me the true power of the doodlebug, the TMSL Mock Trial program taught me the technique. Conclusion: The Thurgood Marshall School of Law Mock Trial Rules!!!

In 2012, Studdard was the Salutatorian of the Thurgood Marshall School of Law where he served as the Articles Editor for Law Review and as an Advocate on the Mock Trial Team.

Students during a three hour weekly class session, learn how to try cases in the courtroom and compete against other law schools all across the country at various tournaments. Selection for the team is subject to multiple tryouts for various competitions. Coaches make team selections on a variety of factors. To date, the results have been spectacular, and TMSL now has one of the country’s up-and-coming programs. The school has won the BLSA regional tournament twice, has made the finals of one national tournament, the semi-finals of another national tournament, and the semi-finals of two prestigious regional tournaments. Students are expected to work hard to make and remain on the team, but most will find the process rewarding. Even if students do not make a traveling team, they will learn real life skills they can use for the rest of their careers. The teaching and service (including performance) components of the program have resulted in possible course credit, for those students who stay with the program for all four semesters of their second and third year of enrollment. The course credit is modeled after the two hours credit given to those who persevere and perform satisfactorily during their four semesters of service to law review. The plan is to have the initial enrollment for course credit in the Spring of 2013 for those who have satisfactorily completed their four semesters of service to the mock trial program.
