Norman, Wood, Kendrick & Turner is proud to sponsor the NITA Tournament of Champions hosted by Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law, October 31- November 4, 2013.
In 1989, Professor Charles E. “Chuck” Kirkwood of the University of Akron School of Law hosted the first Tournament of Champions Trial Competition. He invited the best trial advocacy law schools in the nation. In 1995, NITA recognized the outstanding quality of this tournament and chose to sponsor the Tournament of Champions.
Today, the tournament is one of the premier law school trial competitions in the nation and is known for having the highest quality of congeniality and good sportsmanship. Each year, sixteen schools are invited.
NWKT is committed to preserving the right to a trial by jury afforded to every American by the 7th Amendment. By sponsoring the Tournament of Champions, NWKT helps foster the next generation of trial lawyers and ensure that America’s jury trial system remains vibrant.
