lawyers at Morrison Mahoney have participated with our Mock Trial
Program as attorney-coaches or judges for a number of years, and we
are very grateful for the firm's involvement this year as a
sponsor," said MBA President Jeffrey N. Catalano. "Morrison
Mahoney's generous sponsorship allows us to give students around
the commonwealth an unmatched opportunity to learn about our legal
system and experience the law as an advocate firsthand."
organized in 1985, the Mock Trial Program's tournament places high
school students in a simulated courtroom to assume the roles of
lawyers and witnesses in a hypothetical case. Thousands of students
at more than 130 schools across the commonwealth are participating.
More than 100 lawyers across the state will serve as volunteer
coaches and judges.
