“Participating in the competition was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences I have had during law school. Billy and I were fortunate enough to compete against extremely talented students, and I think it was the high level of intensity and motivation during our rounds that allowed us to come out on top.” - Jade McKenzie (JD ’16)

“Getting to work with Professor Schultz, Professor Dowling and the talented students who are part of the Alternative Dispute Resolution competition team has been the highlight of my time at Chapman’s Fowler School of Law. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity and I am glad I was able to bring a win home from my very last competition.” - William “Billy” Zakis (JD ’15)
