Middle school students gear up for S.C. Bar Middle School Mock Trial
web posted October 24, 2012
COUNTY – Six middle schools from the
Piedmont region will compete in the S.C. Bar Regional Middle School
Mock Trial Competition on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Greenville County
Courthouse located at 305 E. North St. in Greenville. Participating
schools include Banks Trail, Greenville Middle Academy, Johnston
Edgefield Trenton (JET), Merriwether, Springfield and Sullivan.
Students will present the prosecution and defendant sides of a
fictitious civil case before a panel of local volunteer lawyers and
judges. Additionally, students will fill the roles of attorneys,
witnesses, bailiffs and timekeepers. Each team will be judged on its
presentation skills, rather than the legal merits of the case.
This year’s fictitious case is Jess McGee v. Kasey Moore. McGee, the
owner of a prized bull, is suing Moore for negligence after the bull
escaped from his pasture and was killed in an accident. Moore
denies negligence, claiming the accident was unavoidable, and is suing
McGee for the damage caused to her car.
A total of 12 teams from the three different regions (Coastal, Midlands
and Piedmont) will advance to the state competition Dec. 7-8 at the
Marc H. Westbrook Lexington County Judicial Center located at 205 E.
Main St. in Lexington.
The Mock Trial program is sponsored by the S.C. Bar’s Law Related
Education (LRE) Division, which was developed in 1976 to improve the
ability of teachers to instruct law related education.
Mock Trial program is made possible through an IOLTA grant from the
S.C. Bar Foundation and the S.C. Bar.
S.C. Bar, which has a membership of more than 14,000 lawyers, is
