I recently recently posted about how I was competing in the Young Lawyers Golden Gavel competition last week. The results are in... I didn't win.
I did, however, come second, which means that I am competing in the national competition in September. The woman who won, Marita Pangallo, was truly exceptional, however I refuse to concede that the topics were even.
I had to argue why my firm should or should not conduct its own reality TV show.
She had to discuss "Size Envy: My firm is bigger than yours."
Seriously, there is no way she couldn't have won!
(She probably would have won even with reversed topics, but it is fun to bitch about it.)
See you at the nationals!
