Yau Law Firm Attorneys Beam Proudly over their Students’ Mock Trial Successes

The fall season brought successes for two mock trial teams from Florida Coastal School of Law. Jo-Anne Yau and Florence Chen Monauer both coached two separate teams, and each of them celebrated the successes of their students. At the end of October, the team competing at The Charlotte School of Law, co-coached by Florence Monauer, took second place overall. At the beginning of November, the team competing in Miami, held by the American Bar Association Section of Labor Law, co-coached by Jo-Anne Yau, also took second place overall.

We think trial advocacy is extremely important, which would explain why the firm is heavily involved in training law students about litigation skills. But, as former law students who were also once involved in mock trials, both Jo-Anne Yau and Florence Monauer think that mock trial is “terribly fun,” and “the rush of getting to the top is a feeling like none other.”

“Jo-Anne and I don’t see mock trial as just another competition,” Monauer said, “we sincerely desire that each person we come in contact with become successful.  I can’t tell you enough how proud of my students I am. I personally saw each of these students transform into good litigators. They would probably give other practicing attorneys a run for their money…seriously! To me, that says volumes about success. I know that Jo-Anne shares the same sentiment about her students as well.”
