UAB Pre-Law Advisory Board Holds Annual Event
|Cory, Watson team: Stephen Hunt, Jerry Merin, Vicki Lankford, Phil Puccio, and Karen Lawrence|
Birmingham-area attorneys and others in the legal profession faced off again at the Regions-Harbert Center Plaza on March 26 for the sixth annual UAB Magic City Chili Cook-Off. A panel of local court judges selected the law firm of Cory, Watson, Crowder & DeGaris PC for first place; Sirote & Permutt PC for second; and Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton LLP for third. The People’s Choice award went to Balch & Bingham LLP; Best Table Decorating went to Lightfoot Franklin & White LLC.
Sponsored by the UAB Pre-Law Advisory Board and Freedom Court Reporting, the competition was created to help support UAB’s pre-law program. Funds raised during the event support scholarship awards for students in the program and benefit UAB’s award-winning undergraduate Mock Trial Team. The pre-law program, administered by the UAB Department of Justice Sciences, is an interdisciplinary program that prepares undergraduate students for the legal profession through its curriculum, mock trial program, and other activities.
