Miami also took 11 individual awards of the 24 awarded, earning four of the top 10 witness awards and seven of the top 14 attorney awards.
Jamie Smith (senior, secondary education) and Brad Keffer (senior, marketing) were the only two attorneys to get perfect scores; Rick Ohl (junior, political science) was one of three witnesses to receive perfect scores. Ohl also received an outstanding attorney award.
The team is coached by Dan Herron, Wayne Staton and Dan Haughey (all finance). They were assisted by attorney Angela Haughey and economics graduate student Andrew Hogan.
