SCARBOROUGH – The Scarborough High School Mock Trial Team ended a successful season at the Maine State Bar Association tournament in federal court in Portland.
The team’s 43 members performed different lawyer roles in the fictitious case of State vs. Fran Lewis, a murder case. Six witnesses played different witness roles.
“The kids came a long way, and learned a great deal,” said Dan Warren, partner at Jones and Warren, a Scarborough law firm, and SHS Mock Trial coach. “This was a fun case, with the students getting to play many different roles, and learn some valuable lifetime skills.”
At the competition, the Scarborough team beat Sanford High School in a match to advance to the state quarter finals where they narrowly lost to Waynflete.
