Park Mock Trial Team Wins County Championship!

On Thursday, March 21, Park’s Mock Trial Team won the County Championship by defeating Hereford High School! Park is now one of eight teams left in the state-wide mock trial competition. Competing as the Defense, we will take on Dematha Catholic High School from Prince George’s County in the Regional competition on Wednesday, April 10 at 4:00 pm. Location:  Montgomery County Circuit Court • 9th Floor, Courtroom # 5  • 50 Maryland Avenue • Rockville, MD 20850. 

Congratulations to the team on their run of stellar performances! For those interested in attending the Regional competition, please know that spectators should refrain from wearing any clothing indicating support of either school. The judge/scorers aren’t supposed to know where each school is from.

About Mock Trial: Mock Trial provides students with the opportunity to explore the legal process and participate in simulated trials. Students receive a case from the Maryland State Bar Association’s Statewide High School Mock Trial Competition, are assigned roles as attorneys or witnesses, and compete against other students from Baltimore County public, parochial, and independent schools.

In 2012, The Park School Mock Trial Team captured the State Championship for the second year in a row. This is the first time in the history of the competition that any team has won back-to-back championships. In the finals, Park competed as the prosecution against The Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy from Montgomery County. Excelling in this head-to-head competition requires understanding of the law, court procedures, and the legal system; excellent listening, speaking, reading, and reasoning skills; communication and cooperation; and focused determination.
