December 2012

Congratulations to Brandon Black, the Mocker of the Month for December 2012.

“My name is Brandon Black. I am a junior majoring in political science. This is my first year participating in mock trial and it has been a great experience. I have learned a lot this year and shared in a lot of great times with the other people on the team. The mock trial team at Illinois is full of great people. Everyone has been very helpful and we have had a lot of fun so far this year. I am looking forward to the rest of our season and competing at the remaining tournaments.” – Brandon Black

“While Brandon has only been on the team for less than a year now, he has an incredible presence in the courtroom that makes him a natural at mock trial. As both a Defense Attorney and Agent Carey Connor of the United States Coast Guard he commands the room in a professional yet likable way and consistently improves at each tournament. Brandon is the type of person who goes above and beyond what anyone asks of him, always there to do whatever the team needs. He is a great teammate, a hard worker, and one of the nicest guys I know. I am so glad to have him on my co-counsel and on Blue. Congrats, Brandon!” -Alison Anderson
