Welcome the 2022-23 Baxter Fellow in Litigation
Christina Stout began her litigation journey in GGU’s Summer Trial and Evidence Program (STEP) in 2020. After graduating from STEP, Christina competed in GGU’s Golden Griffin Challenge during her 2L year, where she and her partner won 1st Place. As a winner of the competition, Christina was offered a spot on GGU’s National Trial Team, and went on to compete in the All-Star National Mock Trial Competition and the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association Competition. Christina was selected as co-captain of the National Trial Team during the fall of her 3L year, including participating as a teaching assistant for the team.
In her 2L year, Christina interned at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, working in the Post-Conviction Unit. Christina then interned at a personal injury firm, where she had the opportunity to strengthen her litigation skills. Due to her budding litigation experience, Christina was then offered an intern position working with Professor Curtis Briggs at his private defense firm in San Francisco. She has been a teaching assistant for various litigation courses, including Evidence and Trial Advocacy in STEP. As a member of the 2022 graduating class, Christina received the Most Significant Contribution to the Litigation Center Litigation Leadership Award. In the future, Christina hopes to work as a criminal defense attorney, to fight to protect the rights of every client.
Christina is looking forward to being a part of the Litigation Center team and providing opportunities to law students to teach them trial skills, confidence in the courtroom, and public speaking abilities. Christina will use her experiences to help organize the National Trial Team and the upcoming TYLA competition being hosted by GGU, as well as assist with the Center’s Seminar Series, and 1st STEP.
