New Glarus High School Mock Trial will participate in its 19th tournament
NEW GLARUS — The New Glarus High School Mock Trial team will compete in its 19th annual mock trial tournament on Saturday and Sunday, February 12 and 13, 2022.The students are responsible for mastering a manual with over 90 pages of evidentiary rules and trial procedures, and another 54 pages of witness statements, exhibits and legal standards before they compete against teams from across southern Wisconsin. They assume roles as either lawyers presenting the case and making arguments, or as witnesses who must make a convincing presentation of their facts. The witnesses are then cross examined by student attorneys from other teams before the panel of three judges decides on points which side has “won” that particular trial.This year’s fictional case is a civil case involving a claim for a violation of the Americans with Disability Act brought by Gabi Stone against a business known as The Donut Whole, a family donut shop owned by the Harrison family.
