Eight teams from around the country will meet Saturday and Sunday in the national finals of the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law Sixth Annual Student Trial Advocacy Competition in Washington, D.C.

The LEL Trial Advocacy Competition introduces law students to the challenges and rewards of employment and labor litigation.
