Morrison Mahoney LLP recently contributed $5,000 to the
Massachusetts Bar Association's Statewide High School Mock Trial
Program. It joins the Massachusetts Bar Foundation as the primary
sponsors of the 2017 mock trial season.
"Several 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."
First 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
