What’s His Favorite Mock Trial Memory?

How has Mock Trial Helped Him?
“What has mock helped me with? It’s pretty simple for me, it’s changed my life. I’ve found my passion for the law and adore trial work. I still do mock, at Maryland now, but my success here is derived from the things I learned back then. Appellate work, trial work, legal research, all of the things I’ve learned over time started with late practice in Mr. Lambert’s classroom.” – Jonah.
