BLSA Wins Medium Chapter of the Year

Earlier this month, our Black Law Students Association chapter (FSU BLSA) won Medium Chapter of the Year honors at the SRBLSA Regional Convention in Birmingham, Alabama. 

The FSU BLSA team of Tawanna Franklin (3L), Joshua Funderburke (1L), Jemma Takx (1L) and Mikayla Taylor (1L), coached by alumna C. Erica White ('01), also placed second out of 15 teams in the regional Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition. Both honors qualify FSU BLSA students to compete for the corresponding national awards in March in Brooklyn, New York. In addition, Mikayla Taylor was named Best Advocate during the mock trial competition.
