A Traynor Triumph!

A Traynor Triumph!

For the first time in history, San Joaquin College of Law played host to the Traynor Moot Court Competition this year. Fourteen law schools competed, including teams from Berkeley, Hastings, McGeorge, and Davis. San Joaquin College of Law was thrilled when Justice Marvin R. Baxter announced on the morning of April 14th the SJCL team had “edged out” Loyola to take the Roger J. Traynor trophy for Best Oral Argument.
