Teaching Trial Skills to Students at University of Mobile

Attorney Martin Poynter is working with the University of Mobile trial team, teaching them everything they would need to know in order to try a real case as an attorney.

"I've been waiting for an opportunity like this to come along. When I first heard about the University of Mobile starting a trial team, I thought this would be a chance for me to have a positive impact on the lives of students aspiring to learn about how the trial process works," Poynter said.

He added, "This will be an incredible experience for those wanting to go into the practice of law. It is a kind of on-the-job training that real life law practice simply doesn't offer anymore. The vast majority of cases today, upwards of 90 percent, settle before trial.
