Zaniah joined the team her freshman year and gave the closing statement for C-Team during the 2009-2010 season. For the next three years she competed on A-Team and held various positions on the Executive Board, including president during her senior year. She was a competitor on the first RUMTA team to advance to Nationals; that year Rutgers placed second in the nation.

Since graduating, Zaniah has returned to the organization multiple times to offer her time as assistant coach for the B-Team. She is currently a 3L at New York Law School, where she is the president of multiple organizations, including the NYLS Trial Competition Team. Zaniah received a scholarship and award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy from the New York City Trial Lawyers Alliance, showing how RUMTA excellence extends far beyond the organization’s home on the Raritan.


Joining RUMTA was the best decision that I made in college. I met lifelong friends, and my coaches and mentors helped shape my passion for advocacy. RUMTA is more than a team, we are family.
