High School Mock Trial Championship Starts Friday

High school teams from across Tennessee will put their legal skills to the test during the Tennessee Bar Association's 33rd Annual Mock Trial Championship this weekend in Nashville. The event will be held at the historic Davidson County Courthouse with sitting judges presiding over the four preliminary rounds. Tennessee Supreme Court Justice William C. Koch Jr. will preside over the final round. To reach the state championship, the 14 teams had to win district competitions by playing the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a fictitious case developed by the Tennessee Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
