For the second 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 2018 Mock Trial season.
“Over the next few months, thousands of high school students across Massachusetts will get a firsthand look at our legal system through Mock Trial’s incredible immersive learning experience. This would not be possible without the generous support of Morrison Mahoney LLP,” said MBA President Christopher P. Sullivan. “I offer my sincere thanks to Morrison Mahoney LLP Managing Partner Scott Burke and his law firm colleagues for their ongoing commitment to our Mock Trial Program.”
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 125 schools across the commonwealth are participating. More than 100 lawyers across the state will serve as volunteer coaches and judges.
