Mock Trial Club

March 17, 2015

MTC Shield

For the Spring semester, the student attorneys have been busy preparing for the trial of the Spring 2015 Case Problem: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Robin Woods. This is a criminal case involving the disappearance of Robin Woods’ grandmother. The Defendant, Robin Woods, has been charged with first degree murder. The prosecution believes that, on June 26, 2013, Robin Woods killed her grandmother and disposed of the remains.

Our two mock trial teams – the Golden Justices and the Legal Warriors – will compete against one another for the title of the Spring 2015 Mock Trial Champions. The Golden Justices will represent the Defendant, Robin Woods. The Legal Warriors will represent the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The mock trial competition will be held on May 2, 2015.

These student attorneys earned an additional 10 points each for their teams by completing activities, such as translating Latin phrases (“Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat.”) and creating care packages for the homeless. From Left to Right: Jalen Davis, Kason Daniels, Taisja Gordon, and Confidence Onyekere.
