DANVILLE — The often-complex legal process is no match for the razor sharp wit of the Danville High School mock trial team. The mock trial team at DHS is advancing to the next round of statewide competitive mock trial with a trip to the regional competition.
Mock trial, as the name suggests, is a simulation of an actual court of law with trial procedures. It is a hands-on approach to learning about law and how the legal system functions.
DHS mock trial advisor Hunter Webster told the News that the school had registered three teams for the district competition this year, which consisted of: Samantha Addair, Tristan Bowen, Carol Ann Durbin, Hunter Durbin, Justice Ferenbaugh, Skyler Kerr, Jackson Kidwell, Faith Langdon, Adeline Lucas, Daniel Patrick, Robert Pitsenberger, Abigail Porter, Seth Riley, Makalya Rolince, Katie Severns and Ce’Marius Thomas.
