Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC is proud to announce that the Thomas Jefferson School of Law will receive a $140,000 gift from the firm to support the Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s trial advocacy program. The endowment fund will be known as the Epsten Grinnell & Howell Trial Advocacy Program and will help fund the student trial practice teams in competitions in which the law school participates.
The Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Mock Trial Team has an outstanding track-record of success against teams from the nation’s top-ranked law schools. The Mock Trial Team competes in trial advocacy competitions, and students develop courtroom skills of particular value to a trial lawyer, such as a criminal prosecutor or defense attorney, a personal injury or medical malpractice plaintiffs’ lawyer, or an insurance defense lawyer.
Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC is pleased to contribute towards the Trial Advocacy Program. It is not only a great way to support the alma mater of Jon Epsten and that of several other Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC attorneys, but it also is a great way to give back to the community and support our next generation through the best asset anyone can be given, a quality education.
The mission of Thomas Jefferson School of Law is to provide an outstanding legal education for a nationally-based, diverse student body in a collegial and supportive environment with attention to newly emerging areas of law, particularly those related to technological development, globalization and the quest for social justice. Located in Downtown San Diego, Thomas Jefferson School of Law has evolved into an innovative, cutting-edge law school, devoted to the individual needs and success of its students.
