An opportunity to hone their courtroom skills. That's how the inaugural Attorney General's Cup was billed.

The 3-day mock trial competition pitted law students from Missouri's four law schools - University of Missouri, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Washington University and St. Louis University - against each other. The students spent three days in Jefferson City arguing a civil suit from either the plaintiff or defense side of the case.
