This is Kayla’s second year with Miami’s Mock Trial Program, and her sixth year competing after four in high school. Though both a University Law & Public Policy Scholar and a member of the Honors Program, she is thrilled to be a member of what she can confidently say is the best academic program Miami has to offer. Kayla will always be grateful to the fantastic coaches, alumni, and fellow competitors in the MMT family that allow it to be. The passion for law and advocacy which she applies as an attorney for MMT also lends itself to her research with the Prosecution Project, analyzing the prosecution of terrorism and political violence in the US since 1990. Kayla’s plan is to allow this passion to direct her through law school and into a career in criminal defense.
