2018 High School Mock Trial Competition
I want to thank everyone so much for their assistance with the 2018 High School Mock Trial Competition. This year we had 25 high schools from across the County compete in this year’s competition.

Finally, a big thank you to all of the Judges for allowing the use of their Courtrooms and for the Sheriffs for their assistance in opening each Courtroom and staying later than usual in the Courthouse.
The students all did a wonderful job and improve each year. Looking forward to next year’s competition.
