At Urban & Taylor, S.C., we’re strong proponents of supporting young lawyers, aspiring law students, and bright students of all ages and backgrounds who take an interest in the legal profession. One of the best ways to showcase early legal talent is by holding mock trials. Mock trial competitions are commonly held for law students who are practicing their skills in litigation, but they’re held at the high school level as well.
The largest mock trial competition for high schoolers is the Mock Trial National Championship. This year, the championship competition will be held in Reno, Nevada. We’re proud to support the Shorewood High School Mock Trial Team in their efforts to compete at the National Championship this May. Shorewood High School is in the neighborhood of our law firm’s office, and the mock trial team recently won the Wisconsin State Championship. They’re now setting their sights for the ultimate goal– Nationals!
It’s Christmastime in Milwaukee! That means it’s time for snow, evergreen trees, presents by the dozen, holiday carols, and plenty of joy and cheer. And, if we’re honest, just a fair amount of stress. This holiday season, the legal team at Urban & Taylor, S.C. has decided to put together a guide highlighting some of the best holiday events, shows, festivities, restaurants, bars, local gift stores, and Christmas tree farms Milwaukee has to offer. We’re hoping to make this holiday season just a little brighter for everyone.
So, take a breather, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate (or spiked eggnog if that’s your preference!) and pick out a few events to enjoy below. If you feel we’re missing anything, by the way, drop us a note. We’re happy to make any suggested changes or additions.
