Jamar Walker
Hometown:Melfa, VA
Occupation:Federal Prosecutor

As an undergraduate, Jamar was a three-year member of Virginia mock trial, competing on the 2006 and 2007 national championship teams. In both the State of Midlands v. Tyler Perry (2006) and Jeffries v. Polk County Police Department (2007) cases, Jamar gave the opening statement in the final round. He also served as Executive Vice-President and a team captain in his final year as an undergraduate. He began serving as an assistant coach during his first year of law school in 2008.

Jamar graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in 2011. He then served as a law clerk to the Honorable Raymond A. Jackson in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Jamar will tell anyone who will listen that becoming a member of the Virginia Mock Trial team is the best decision he has ever made (that is, until the team decides to order Chinese food).

He is currently a federal prosecutor in Northern Virginia.
