This year’s Trial College took place from August 1-5 at Black Canyon Conference Center in Phoenix. The program was limited to 36 students.
Mr. Mushkatel earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona and his law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School. He has practiced law in Arizona since 2004.
