New members join Mock Trial club

The Mock Trial captains added nine new members to this year’s team, tri-captain Alec Winshel ’16 said in an email to club members Oct 1.

Students who signed up for the Mock Trial Club tried out Sept. 28-30. Each student spent 10 minutes for his or her tryout which determined each students’ positions on the team.

“I am extremely optimistic about this season,” team tri-captain Megan Cohen ’17 said. “The team’s success rests upon the students, no matter which role they play, and I believe we are going to have a hard-working, devoted group this year that can lead us to another victory.”

During their audition, they role-played the prosecutor for People v. Hayes, the trial of a student accused of the homicide of a police officer.

The new team will meet three days a week from 3-5 p.m. October and November to prepare for this year’s Los Angeles County Tournament.

“I think Mock Trial will be a really unique experience that could further develop my interest in law,” Ravi Durairaj ’17 said.

Last year, the school’s Mock Trial team won the Los Angeles County Tournament.
