This is my third year coaching the Dorman High School Mock Trial team. Pictured above are the coaches, teachers, and team members during the Regional High School Competition in February 2020. The students did so well at the competition after almost 5 months of preparing! I enjoy coaching Mock Trial because I of course enjoy teaching these students about my profession, but I mostly enjoy watching them develop as students. Through the course of preparing for trial, they gain so much confidence, they develop critical thinking and public speaking skills, and their interest in the legal profession grows. I am proud of how well the students did this year. They continue to amaze me with how quickly they can pick up rules of evidence, develop a case theme, and present a thorough, well-prepared trial. I wish those graduating students the best of luck and I am looking forward to next year’s season. Go Cavs!
