ADRIA KIMBROUGH

Coach, Dillard University

"Let's do something a little different this year. Like, maybe we don't talk as much. And let's be clear, the goal is the same. But, instead, taking that same energy and focusing it on what we're doing right now, what we are doing in this bootcamp. What we are going to be doing Monday at practice."

LAURA ROSE

Coach, University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law

"Stand firm on your knowledge. Stand firm on your preparation. Don't worry about the individual components of it right now. You know how to flow with this. You're a monster. Get in there and destroy people."

PHOEBE MENAKER

Student, Brooklyn Law

"My grandmother was a social worker for victims and survivors of domestic violence. Between her impact that she's had on me and my general interest, that's brought me to the Victim Advocacy route."

LAJEANNE SHELTON

Student, Dillard University

"The young lady who was the middle attorney, she said that she really appreciated that we were a team of all Black women. It made her feel really empowered as a woman."

JASON GOSS

Coach, St. Mary's University

"I know justice isn't perfect. But we as attorneys, we at least have the opportunity every day to try to achieve it. And that's why I became a lawyer."

COLE DAVILA

Student, St. Mary's University

"May it please the court. Our circumstances determine our conditions. The decisions that we make at any given moment can change our lives for better or worse."

ELLIE SANDS

Student, Brooklyn Law

"People who are human, and who have been to rock bottom and build themselves back up again, deserve a second chance. This is an individual. This is a human being. And if you just met her, you would understand."

AMAYA RONCZYK

Student, Dillard University

"It's important that there's a place for lawyers that work with empathy, that sympathize with their clients, that understand that there's more behind the story. It's important that the person sitting at the defendant's table, that their story is portrayed in a way that makes the jury or the judge empathize or place themselves in their shoes."

AJ BELLIDO de LUNA

Coach, St. Mary's University

"I'm not building competitors. I'm building advocates. I'm building people who are going to go out and represent people who don't have representation."

ANJANI SHAH

Student, Brooklyn Law

"I stand here, because I want the jury to see me and my reactions.  And you, as the witness, are now looking at me and not them. That has quite an effect on the jury as well, when you're diverting your eyes away from them."

KATHRINE BOYKO

Student, Brooklyn Law

"My mom was a lawyer in Ukraine. She had to leave her home country to make sure I had a better life. And so it was really important for me to carry on those dreams, carry on that ambition."

CAITLIN DOUGLAS

Student, Dillard University

"I'm a troublemaker to a lot of people. I was heavily involved back home in protesting, marching and grassroots activism. And so, I'm deemed pretty aggressive most of the time because I stand ten toes down on what I believe in. It's good trouble. I make good trouble."
