Students in Mock Trial attended their first competition  Nov. 4.

Teams from over 30 counties across California competed in the event. The team portrayed lawyers and witnesses in its own version of a case called “People v. Concha.”

“I was nervous because I was the first witness going up, and the other team was going to be asking me questions,” Alex Arreola ’15 said. “The trail gave me a good idea of what a lawyer does.”

“I thought the kids did very well,” adviser David Hinden said. “I love workng with the Mock Trial team. The growth we see during the season is great.”

Mock Trial was to participate in its second tournament Nov. 12.
