The Hoffman cup is the “crown jewel” advocacy tournament for upperclassmen at our law school. The tournament is named after our beloved alumnus, former Dean of DU Law, and nationally-renowned attorney. The finalists endured six very competitive rounds of advocacy. The judges ultimately crowned Sara Lindsey Peterson and Joshua Mangiagli as this year’s Champions and Joshua Mangiagli as this year’s Best Advocate.
