Adam Sommer (center above) started coaching UCM Mock Trial in the fall of 2013. He is a practicing attorney in Warrensburg, concentrating on family law, general litigation, municipal law, and other areas of general practice. He is a graduate of Univ. of Missouri, School of Law in 2012 where he was a member of the law school’s Attorney General Cup mock trial team, and TYLA Mock Trial competition team. Adam’s time with UCM is a return to the program, where he was a competitor from Fall, 2006 until his graduation from UCM in December, 2008 earning regional and national honors. Combining undergraduate and law school competition, and now his role as coach, he has over a decade of experience in mock trial. His goal for UCM is to grow and support a program designed to produce graduates prepared for the rigors of law school, with a realistic expectation of the practice of law.
