When I joined the mock trial team as a freshman three years ago, I expected some sort of “Law and Order” type procedure, complete with overly dramatic objections and witnesses passing out on the stand. After about a week on the Skyline Mock Trial team, I learned that I was very wrong. Being on a mock trial team was not “Law and Order”, but more about late night memorizing closing arguments and early Saturday mornings at the courthouse practicing direct and cross examinations. Nevertheless, I could never have anticipated the endless fun, invaluable education, and lifelong friendships that I was fortunate enough to gain. While on the team, I met some of the most brilliant and driven people whom I am blessed to call my teammates and coaches. We learned the value of quick thinking and careful listening which not only apply to mock trial but to all areas of life. I have also learned the value of teamwork. A mock trial team is much more than a group of smart people who come together and pretend to try a case. It is truly a family that dedicates everything for the value of legal education and for each other.
