An enjoyable afternoon is planned. The Danville High School Mock Trial team has been very successful in recent years in the Mock trial competition. Ohio Mock trial offers an innovative approach to learning about law and how our legal system functions. Guided by teachers and volunteer legal advisor, students participate in an original, unscripted simulated trial written by attorneys. High school students argue both sides of the case in real courtrooms across the state. Danville students have advanced to the state trial competition for the past several years.
Members of Danville’s Mock trial team will be sharing an aspect of the competition and the skills they have developed in presenting a “case” from both the plaintiff and defense perspective. Team advisor Hunter Webster reported the Danville team was the only team from their regional competition to advance to the state level. There were only 35 teams from across the state that moved to the state competition.
The students spend many hours preparing for the competition. Skilled volunteers along with faculty team advisor, Hunter Webster, and Noel Alden, local attorney, are excited to share with guests the achievements of the Danville Mock Trial team.
