Morrison Mahoney LLP sponsors MBA Mock Trial Program

Issue January/February 2017

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 judges.
