Midwood High School Student Mentees Win Matches in NY Mock Trial Competition
CAL is proud to announce that its Midwood High School student mentees won their first two matches in the New York State mock trial competition, and are preparing to advance to the competition’s next round. During their first two matches, our mentees, only one of whom has done mock trial before and none of whom are seniors, were cool, confident, sharp, and professional during the matches. Our student witnesses knew their information completely, and refused to be pigeonholed on cross examination. Our student lawyers understood hearsay on a deep level. They sliced and diced the other teams with objections. They delivered crisp and precise openings and closings. And they looked like lawyers while they were doing it. It was a well-deserved outcome considering how incredibly hard the students have worked, including commuting to CAL on Wednesdays and on Saturdays. Needless to say, we are very proud of our student mentees!Summons or Arrest? The Arbitrary Enforcement of Low-Level Offenses in New York City
