Bay Area Attorneys and Judges Team Up To Coach and Judge Mock Trial Students


The 2011 mock trial program and competition did not disappoint. Seven teams of high school students and more than 100 attorneys and judges worked for several months leading up to the competition in February. On February 24, Balboa High School and the School of the Arts (SOTA) competed in the final round. After an impressive contest, SOTA emerged as the victor and represented San Francisco in a state competition that took place in March. The Mock Trial program is administered by BASF’s Barristers Club and the Diversity Pipeline Department.

Next year the committee intends to add new teams from low-performing high schools in San Francisco.
