mocktrial team visit

Mock Trial Team, State Champion Forestbrook Middle School

On Tuesday, the University of South Carolina School of Law had the pleasure to meet with the Forestbrook Middle School mock trial team, from Myrtle Beach.

The all-female team was in Columbia to receive special recognition at the State House for winning the South Carolina Middle School Mock Trial Competition. Amazingly, since Forestbrook revived its mock trial program five years ago, the school has won the statewide competition three out of the last four years-and came in second that fourth year.

Following their visit to the State House, the students made a stop at the USC School of Law for a tour and a chance to meet with Dean Rob Wilcox, Assistant Dean of Admissions Lewis Hutchison, and Law Professor Bob Bockman. Each congratulated the group on their achievements and spoke to them about how the skills they are learning now are preparing them for success in law school and in life.

But it was meeting and interacting with the members of the School of Law's mock trial team that really energized the girls.

Second-year students Dawn Berry, Cassidy Evans, and Erin Kedrowski engaged the Forestbrook students on their competition experiences, and were surprised and impressed by the students' advanced knowledge of objections and procedures.

And the middle school students were eager to ask their own questions about what law school was like and hear about competitions at the collegiate level. The law students happily shared tips they had learned, such as how to improve opening and closing statements, and the importance of self-confidence in the courtroom.

While many of the young women expressed an interest in a career in the legal field, if their accomplishments so far are any indication, all of them will undoubtedly have bright futures
