Young Lawyers Gearing Up for Mock Trial

The YLD Mock Trial Committee is working hard to get this year’s case ready for release on Nov. 28. The 2013 mock trial problem will be criminal in nature and feature all of the twists and turns expected from the mock trial experience. District coordinators also will be announced on Nov. 28. Teams seeking to get a head start on preparing should consider watching footage of past championship rounds. The TBA has DVDs of the 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012 championship rounds for sale.

Also, Central High School in Memphis is looking for a local attorney to coach them in the 2013 competition. The district competition will take place in early February 2013 at the Shelby County Courthouse. Anyone interested in volunteering to help the team should contact Nicole Grida at nicole.grida@leitnerfirm.com for more information.
