Laying Down the Law

Babylon Memorial Grade School’s Mock Trial club members recently became trial attorneys, witnesses and legal aides as they participated in the Western Suffolk BOCES Mock Trial Tournament against two other Long Island teams.

With the support of a volunteer attorney, Patrick Shelley, and teacher advisers, Kerrin Brennan, Jessica Kurtz and Lisa Necroto, students tackled legal issues, engaged in legal analysis and ultimately tried a case in a mock courtroom before a judge.   
          
After intense trials and outstanding performances, both the plaintiff team and defense team were victorious; each winning their cases and also winning for overall presentation and style. Each team member was presented with a certificate of appreciation and a gold gavel pin.
