Our Mock Trial team recently closed another successful season. We were undefeated through the preliminary rounds with a 4-0 record. Unfortunately, we lost the first elimination round on December 4, our opponents were last year’s champions, University High School, and our girls fought a challenging match!
Mock Trial is a class where students simulate a trial based on a case packet; both Prosecution and Defense sides are argued by students assigned as lawyers and witnesses. The case of People v. Klein involves the trial of Regan Klein, a young adult resident of the fictional town of East Flamingo, California. Reagan is charged with two felony counts: making a false report of an emergency (commonly referred to as “swatting”) and making a criminal threat.
The Mock Trial team thanks all members of the Connelly community for coming out and showing support!
Note: Connelly’s Mock Trial team enjoyed a very successful season. They were the only all-girls school in Orange County, and the only Tri-School team, to advance to the Top 16, or “Sweet 16” as it is known. Congratulations on a job well done!
