Archmere Students Compete in Delaware's Mock Trial Competition
On February 27 and 28, twelve Archmere students competed in Delaware's Mock Trial Competition as attorneys and witnesses, earning recognition for their case preparation and delivery. Each year, teams from Delaware's public and private schools are provided a case to analyze and present during this two day competition. Before a panel of Trial Court Judges, attorneys and members of the legal community, including one Delaware Supreme Court Justice, students play the roles of the witnesses and attorneys in the case. Over 250 members of the Judiciary and Delaware Bar act as legal advisors to the teams, and as judges and jurors for the competition.
