For the third year in a row, Morrison Mahoney LLP has signed on to be the primary law firm sponsor of the Massachusetts Bar Association's Statewide High School Mock Trial Program. With its $5,000 donation, Morrison Mahoney LLP joins the Massachusetts Bar Foundation as the main sponsors of the 2019 Mock Trial season.

“We greatly appreciate Morrison Mahoney’s faithful support of the MBA High School Mock Trial Program, which will enter its 34th year in 2019,” said MBA President Christopher A. Kenney. “This generous donation will ensure that thousands of Massachusetts high school students continue to receive a firsthand introduction to the judicial system and an entry into civic life.”

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 judges.
