Park’s Mock Trial Team Finishes Strong

Category:

Congratulations to the Mock Trial team on their run of stellar performances! The team made it all the way to the State Semi-Finals, which was held last Thursday, April 18 at the Anne Arundel Circuit Courthouse.

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.
