Robert Goins, left, University of Arkansas law student with the school’s law team, walks back to his desk Thursday after speaking with the judges, from left, Sonya Dodson, Michael Dodson and Vince Chaddick during a mock trial in the courtroom at the Old Washington County Courthouse during the the Regional Championship of the annual National Trial Competition. The regional championship brings together 22 teams from law schools in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Tennessee. The top two teams will compete in the National Competition in San Antonio on April 3-6.

Future Perry Masons tried a murder case Thursday in Fayetteville but instead of someone going to prison, law students got to show off their courtroom skills.
