About the competition: The competition is named for Irving L. Neumiller.  Neumiller, a Stockton native born in 1899, was a respected partner with the law firm currently known as Neumiller & Beardslee. Neumiller joined his uncle's firm in 1923 upon graduation from UC Berkeley School of Law. He became a partner in 1925 and founded the firm's trial practice. Neumiller was also an active member of the State Republican Party and was appointed a member of the World Trade Center Authority. Known as an outstanding trial lawyer, Neumiller's firm recognized him after his death by establishing the Irving L. Neumiller trophy for the winner of the annual moot court competition at UC Davis School of Law.
