Penn Law’s Mock Trial Team’s Fourth Annual Intramural Mock Trial Competition
This past weekend, Penn Law’s Mock Trial Team hosted its Fourth Annual Intramural Mock Trial Competition, with ten teams competing and arguing State of Midlands v. Dawson. This criminal case focused on the issue of whether the defendant involved committed murder by recklessly drunk driving and demonstrating extreme indifference to human life.
In the preliminary rounds Catherine Eagan was recognized as the best defense attorney, Sarah Kramer and Leia Andrew were both recognized as the best prosecution attorneys, and Allison Theveney was recognized as the best witness in the tournament.
In the championship round, Sarah Kramer, David Schneyer, and Allison Theveny represented the State of Midlands. Joseph Moro, Catherine Eagan, and Antonia Link represented Danny Dawson. After excellent arguments from both sides, the championship was unanimously awarded to the defense team of Moro, Eagan and Link.
Congratulations to our new champions and award winners! Thank you to every student who volunteered as an unprepared witness.
