The case and rules for the 2013 High School Mock Trial Competition is now available for competitors. This year's criminal scenario features an investment broker who uses clients’ investments to fund his lavish lifestyle, but while awaiting trial, suddenly dies in a car crash. Suspicion falls on a local auto mechanic and pharmacist, both who lost their life savings in the scheme, and had a motive to kill the broker. As always, the case offers opportunities for students to express their creativity, develop persuasive speaking skills and learn the basics of trial procedure. The case was prepared by the TBA YLD Mock Trial Committee, under the leadership of  Troy Weston, Candi Henry and Will Holloway. Local competitions will take place in February, with the state finales slated for March 15-16 in Nashville.
