SAN DIEGO – SCRIPPS RANCH HIGH SCHOOL WINS 12TH ANNUAL MOCK TRIAL COMPETITION (School Team Wins Competition for Second Year in a Row)
Scripps Ranch High School’s Mock Trial team outperformed 29 other County High School teams to win the annual legal competition. The San Diego County Mock Trial program provides high school students with actual experience in courtrooms rather than learning about the rule of law from books and lectures. The student teams undertake the roles of lawyers and witnesses facing off on a hypothetical case in front of actual state and federal judges. The four day competition was held at the downtown courthouse over the past week and a half.
Scripps Ranch High School will now represent San Diego County in the statewide Mock Trial competition.
The event is organized by San Diego Superior Court, San Diego County Bar Association (SDCBA), together with the Constitutional Rights Foundation (CRF). Judicial officers oversee the bench trials, San Diego County lawyers volunteer their time to serve as team coaches and competition scorers.
