Westminster HS Mock Trial Team State Recognition

The Westminster High School mock trial team and coaches were recognized at the 39th Annual MYLAW Mock Trial Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, for finishing the mock trial season as one of the final 8 teams in the state of Maryland. A total of 125 mock trial teams across the state of Maryland competed this year.

Carroll County Public Schools partnered with local courts, judges, attorneys, and Maryland Youth and the Law (MYLAW) to bring the mock trial program to students in 2016. At the center of each year's competition is a new legal case – either civil or criminal in nature – that challenges students to think critically about timely issues. Acting as attorneys and witnesses, students portray defense or plaintiff/prosecution and are scored on their performances by judges or attorneys.
