Press Release

The Bishop’s School bested 12 other San Diego County high schools, including La Jolla High which finished second, to win the fifth annual San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition on Feb. 5. La Jolla Country Day also competed.

The competition, which places high school students in a simulated courtroom setting where they assume the roles of lawyers and witnesses in a hypothetical case, took place on Feb. 1, 3, and 5 at the County Courthouse downtown. The Bishop’s School team will go on to represent San Diego County at the California Mock Trial Finals in March.

As part of the program, SDCBA attorney volunteers served as coaches and scorers for the competition and Superior Court Judges and Commissioners presided over the mock trials.

Presented by the San Diego County Bar Association (SDCBA), together with the San Diego Superior Court, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, Constitutional Rights Foundation, San Diego Justice Foundation, San Diego County Office of Education, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, California Western School of Law, and the SDCBA’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service the competition dealt with the fictitious criminal case People vs. Woodson.
