With the start of the new year, Mercy’s Mock Trial team has been practicing and preparing for their upcoming competitions. In March, they will compete in the regional competition and if they win, they move on to the State competition in April.

Mock Trial competitions give students the chance to experience what a real trial would be like, where they can participate as witnesses, jurors, and attorneys with hypothetical cases. Being a part of the team allows for a deeper understanding of what it means to be a lawyer and is perfect for Mercy girls who aspire to go to law school in the future.

Co-captain and senior Priyanka John has been a part of Mock Trial for two years, and is thrilled to be involved with a group of such dedicated, hardworking girls.

“My favorite part about it is the bond I get to foster with the other girls on the team,” John said.

Last year, the Mock Trial team placed 1st in the Regional district competition and went on to compete in the State competition. This was the first time in three years that the team got that far and John says this was because of all the hard work they had put in over the course of a year.

Despite only having about 10 girls on the team this year, Mock Trial holds practice every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m. throughout the whole year.

“I’ve always had an interest in law,” John said. “It is a lot of work, but we all become really close over the course of the year.”
