As many of you will recall from last year, I serve as a volunteer attorney coach for the Georgia high school mock trial team from Luella High School. Today was the date for the regional competition in the increasingly competitive McDonough region.
Although our team did not advance to the finals, our students represented their school well against some very tough opposition and earned a number of distinctions, including winning three out of a possible four best witness awards and three out of a possible four best lawyer awards in the four rounds in which they competed.
I know there are a lot of fellow attorneys who read the site regularly, and, for any of you who are not involved in this program, I would encourage you to take part as a coach or as an evaluator. I promise you that you'll feel good about your profession after spending a day at a regional mock trial competition, and I am very proud of this team for doing such a fine job today.
