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.
