Attorneys and law students are needed to mentor Alhambra High School’s Mock Trial Team. The program, hosted by the Constitutional Rights Foundation, allows students to take on the roles of attorneys, witnesses, and court staff in a criminal case. Mentors will help students prepare for the annual competition by judging practice sessions and giving feedback on student arguments/performances.

·      September 11 – Review the given case packet.

·      September 25 – Email feedback of students’ first drafts (submitted two days prior).
