During this time William made his mark at DU, throwing himself into many of the student organizations to gain as much experience and exposure to the law as possible. William was the Editor-in-Chief of the Sports & Entertainment Law Journal and President of the Sports & Entertainment Law Society, and also competed on the MLB Arbitration and NBA Negotiation Teams. He was also the Director of Judges for the Student Trial Lawyers Association, the Vice President of Judge Recruitment for the Moot Court Board, and an Assistant Coach for the University of Denver’s undergraduate mock trial team. William has since taken over as the Head Coach for DU’s undergraduate mock trial team.
William’s incredible involvement in student organizations did not prevent him from showing his academic prowess, however, graduating with the distinct recognition of Order of the Coif, an honorary scholastic society that is nationally recognized amongst law schools for those who graduate in the top 10% of their class. Additionally, in his third year of law school, William worked in a year-long clinic where he devoted an average of 35 hours of work per week for his clients.
