March 31, 2008 – Claire at Mock Trial

Claire’s high school Mock Trial Team made it out of their region and competed in the state tournament in Des Moines this week (in unrelated, but similar news, Linda is in the jury duty pool in April).


The mock trial team consists of student lawyers and witnesses, they are given a case and argue before a judge and the team members are judged on their knowledge of courtroom decorum and performance.  Claire seems to be eating this up (but don’t anyone tell Grandpa Dave)!  But hey, Grandpa, I’ll leave you with one lawyer joke.

Q: What do you call a lawyer gone bad?

A: Senator.
