Success in Law School
While a student at the University of Georgia's Lumpkin School of Law, he
served as co-founder and executive chairman of the Georgia Association
of Law and Politics, executive secretary of the Georgia Mock Trial Board,
and pupil of the Chattahoochee Inn of Court.
In law school, Chadrick became one of the most decorated advocates in his
class. He was a member of the first Southern Mock Trial Team to win the
Buffalo-Niagara National Mock Trial Tournament (the largest invitational
Mock Trial Tournament in 2011). He was awarded the Weinberg, Wheeler,
Hudgins, Dial and Gunn Outstanding Mock Trial Advocate Award. He was a
member of the Frederick Douglas Moot Court Team and completed a scholarly
article on the changes in Georgia's Evidence Code.
Chadrick also began a law school conference on law and politics designed
to further academic discussion and form solutions about the impact of
legislation on Georgia's citizens. The conference featured several influential
politicos, lawyers and jurists: Chief Justice Carole Hunstein of the Georgia
Supreme Court, Chief Judge John Ellington of the Georgia Court of Appeals,
President Pro Tempore Tommie Williams of the Georgia Senate, and U.S.
Attorney Ed Tarver of the Southern District of Georgia.
Experience in the Legal Field
After graduating law school, Chadrick made history becoming the second
African American born since Reconstruction to serve as an attorney in
his hometown, Toccoa, Georgia. He went on to start a partnership and later
began his firm, The Mance Law Firm in the fall of 2014.
Also in fall 2014, Chadrick served as a visiting professor at Morehouse
College. There he taught business law and lectured on topics such as negligence,
products liability, business torts, legislation, corporate ethics, and
litigation. While a Professor at Morehouse, it is believed that Chadrick
was the youngest adjunct Professor at the time. Later that year, Morehouse
College honored Chadrick by creating a mentoring group in his namesake,
"The Mance Mentoring Group".
