The Law class at False River had a mock trial on its campus. Judge Best allowed us to use his robe and our lawyers wore conservative attire. They put into play all the criminal vocabulary terms they have been learning as well as the trial process. The lawyers, witnesses, judges, jury and bailiffs all did a wonderful job. The Law class will have another mock trial at the beginning of the next nine weeks.
