NEW GLARUS - The New Glarus High School mock trial team will compete in its 12th tournament Saturday in Janesville. Before they compete against teams from across southern Wisconsin, the students are responsible for mastering a manual with over 80 pages of rules and procedures, and 25 pages of witness statements, exhibits and legal standards. They assume roles as either lawyers presenting the case and making arguments or as witnesses who must make a convincing presentation of their facts.
