Future Lawyers Shine at Nationals
As an update on a prior posting, the Overbrook High School Mock Trial Team acquitted themselves quite well at the National High School Mock Trial Championship, held in Wilmington, Delaware. The Panthers finished a respectable 15th place out of 42 teams, behind eventual champion Jonesboro High School of Georgia.
Many of these team members, all seniors, are interested in attending law school after finishing up college. And since, as practicing lawyers, we know that the best litigation training occurs in the courtroom rather than the classroom, it seems that these future lawyers have gotten a good start.
