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.Back to The Latest
