The Wyoming Seminary Mock Trial team recently placed first in the 2010 District High School Mock Trial Competition held in Wilkes-Barre. Attorneys Neil and Cathy O’Donnell coach the Wyoming Seminary team.
The Young Lawyers Division of the Pennsylvania Bar Association sponsored the competition which provided high school students with firsthand experience of the American judicial system. Mock Trial teams argued a case before a judge and were evaluated based on their presentation, opening and closing statements, direct and cross examination, poise and articulation, control of facts ad knowledge of Mock Trial rules of laws and exceptions.
